Mr. Dawson was born August 11, 1960 in Union Springs, AL, the son of Pearlis Eugene Dawson and the late Mabel Sue Roughton Dawson.

Gerry also loved the Atlanta Braves and strumming his guitar. While these things brought him happiness, his greatest joy was his family. Time spent with his family was never enough, and he cherished every minute he spent with them.
