Gerald was born on May 20, 1938, in Lowville, New York, to the late Tell P. and Mary Pasternak Williams.   Besides schools in Boonville and Buffalo, he attended first rural school in Martinsburg and then Lowville Academy.  From 1956 to 1958, he served in the U.S. Army.  On July 1, 1961, he married Caroline V.
