Gerald graduated from Texas A&M University in 1974 with a degree in Accounting and spent the majority of his career at BFI and BDO, Inc. He is remembered by many for his high degree of professionalism and integrity. Gerald loved spending time with his family. Whether it was a trip to visit one of his kids, or a reunion in Gonzales, he cherished memories with his family more than anything.

Gerald was also a faithful servant of his Catholic faith.

One thing that is certain is that Gerald was found at Kyle Field every home game wearing maroon and white and cheering on his beloved Aggies. Gerald had season tickets to the Aggie football games and would never miss a chance to see them play at home. He also enjoyed golf, live music, musicals and friendly games of poker with his long-time Cinco Ranch friends.

Gerald will always be remembered for his quick-witted humor, generous heart and for being an amazing son, husband, father and brother. He will truly be missed.

A funeral mass was celebrated Tuesday, March 27, 2018 at St. John Vianney Catholic Church in Houston. Donations may be accepted at MD Anderson Cancer Center for Melanoma Research in memory of Gerald Burger.
