Gerry attended school in Ft. Stockton. He lived in Midland for a number of years but returned home when he retired. It would be hard to say what Gerry loved most, cooking or fishing. His talents in the kitchen ranged from BBQ to cheesecake to salsa and jerky. In addition to his love of fishing and cooking, Gerry recently became active in Rock Solid Boxing and looked forward to his weekly sessions. He was really proud of the work he had been putting in there.
Gerry was preceded in death by his parents and by his brother, Paul Ainsworth.
He is survived by a brother, Allen (Marilyn) Ainsworth of Willis, TX, four sisters, Kathy Porter of Alvarado, TX, Joan (Randy) Reeves of Ft. Stockton, TX, Billie Southon of Springfield, LA. and Michelle (Mick) Buchanan of Dallas, TX. He is also survived by numerous nieces and nephews, each one being special and each one being his favorite.
