Gerry was a friend. His loss is felt by all the members of the Holbrook FD as well as FDNY. He was an active volunteer rising through the ranks to Chief of Department. He was a member of the racing team as well as the softball team. His thing was forcible entry. He loved to break into fire buildings. His collection of locking devices is amazing. And he could get into all of them. Some called him Juice others Rainbow or Mongo Willie. He called me Bubbles. Only him. No matter what you called him he was a true brother. His legacy continues. Yesterday his son was accepted as a member in the Holbrook FD. That is the third generation of Schrang to gain membership. The brotherhood continues.
