Gerry Respola is Anita Olson Respola's husband.
He has had back problems in the past.
Gerry was witness to a fight between Peggy and her then-boyfriend, Mark. Mark was throwing a surprise party for Peggy with her entire family present. Peggy thought about leaving, but called the restaurant, telling him that she would not make it. Peggy's mother, Katherine told Peggy over the phone that Mark was "crestfallen" and that she was disappointed with her. Mark then wondered why he would bother being nice to her and broke up over the phone. ("The Suitcase")
