Gerald selflessly enlisted in the United States Army during the Vietnam War in 1966 and achieved the rank of First Lieutenant.

Gerald's legacy thrives through his adoring wife, as well as through his children, Jennifer Nilsen and Karl Nilsen, Karl's wife Kathryn Mary Nilsen, and his grandchildren Bruce and Clark.
