Gerald Fleming

Gerald Fleming, age 74, passed away on July 24, 2019. Predeceased by his father Norman, mother Hilda, and brother Jack, he is survived by his son Josh, and his two daughters, Melissa and Amanda, as well as 4 beloved grandchildren.

He was a graduate of Gunning Bedford High School, and in his last days, even when so many memories were gone, he loved regaling us with stories of all the trouble he got into there. He served honorably in the United States Army from 1965 to 1967. In 1971 he graduated from Delaware State University and went on to become an accomplished cost engineer and project manager for DuPont and later Aramco. His job took him all over the world and he lived for a time in Saudi Arabia and then London before returning to the states. The latter portion of his life was spent in his beloved Texas, and he was a huge Texas A&M football fan. He loved riding his Harley with his best friend Nick, throughout the Texas Hill Country and even further when they got the chance. He loved his dogs, art, and reading about history. He was the kindest, most generous father his children could have ever had, he had the greatest sense of humor, and he made anyone he met feel important and loved.

A graveside service will be held at 11 am on Friday, July 9, 2021, at Hickory Grove Cemetery, 428 Port Penn Rd., Middletown, DE. Face masks will be required for all in attendance.

2 Condolences for Gerald Fleming

  • Recently I was surfing the internet looking up old friends when I came across Jerry’s memorial service announcement. I am truly saddened by his passing. Although I have not spoken with him in many years, I will always consider him a dear friend. His sense of humor was one of his most endearing qualities and his love for his children was undeniable.

  • ‘Jerry’ and I became walking buddies while living in the same neighborhood in Horseshoe Bay, TX. After moving out of the country I made attempts to reach him via cell phone, but never could. What GREAT GUY. I’ll remember endless, ‘all-over- the-map’ conversations on our walks with and with the dogs. I’m truly sorry for your loss.
