Joe Gerarden

  

   It is with great sadness and heavy heart to announce that a fellow dancer has moved on.


   Joe Gerarden, born 12-26-1938, known by many of us who dance West Coast Swing, was affiliated   with Swing Dance Club Hawaii for eons!  In recent years you could spot him behind the reception table more than on the dance floor.    

   Except for a very short time at Rehab Hospital of the Pacific, Joe had been at Queen's Hospital since May 2, 2017 battling Leukemia,  compounded by pneumonia, and his body just breaking down, he put up a royal fight till the end, with Bobbi Maniscalco by his side, and the end came today 8-8-2017 around 2pm, Hawaii time.

   I saw Joe again just yesterday.  He will be missed by me, Mary Beth, and many.
   Another star shining down on us now.  Shine brightly, Joe!

   His son will soon be flying in from Seattle, Washington.  
   Funeral arrangements have not yet been made.

   Please send out caring thoughts for his partner Bobbi Maniscalco, and those Joe left behind.

   Be well, everyone!
