      Gerald Ernest Hurlbut, 86, formerly of Pulaski, NY died Feb. 14, 2014 in the Samaritan Medical Center in Watertown, NY. Interment was in Hillside Cemetery, Natural Bridge, NY. He lived on a farm in Pulaski where his parents had an orchard with apple, cherry and pear trees from his birth on May 9, 1927 until he went into the Army on Aug. 22, 1945. He attended Pulaski Academy and Union School. Gerald was an Army Veteran serving with the 787 Military Police Battalion in Paris, France just after WWII ended. Later his unit was attached to the 383 MP Battalion in Frankford, Germany. From 1948 until his father, John, died in 1962, they raised Holsteins and then Black Angus cattle together on their 326 acre farm in LaFargeville, NY. In 1975 he won the Champion 4-H New York Fat Stock Show Breeder Award. Around 2007, he retired. He dedicated 269 acres of his farm to the Wetland Restoration Program to preserve the many wetland plants and animals already living on his property and lived there until his death. He belonged to the American Legion, was a Methodist and worked for the F. K. Gailey Company delivering bottled gas in the Thousand Islands area of NY. Since the family farm house burned to the ground years earlier destroying everything, the family would enjoy copies of any pictures friends had of Gerry and his parents and any stories of him and his friends they would like to share. Pictures and stories can be sent to his niece, Caren Hurlbut at 23333 E. 138 St., So., Coweta, OK 74429. He was preceded in death by his parents, John Clinton and Millie Maria "Rice" Hurlbut, his brother, Charles Clinton and his wife, Irene Hazel "Harrington", his sisters, Alice Emily Johnston & husband, Frank, and Agnes Martha (div.) and Agnes's daughter Carol Ann "Canfield" Kent (NY) & husband, Edward Arthur, and Jean Marshall's husband, Robert Fred. He is survived by and deeply missed by Agnes's Children, Jean Kitty Marshall (NY), John Harold Canfield (OK) & wife, Gui Lan "Sheng", Bette Ilene Jonas (WV) & husband, Samuel Walter, Jim Scott Canfield (ND) & wife Sharon Kay "Stanley", and Caren Alice Slick Hurlbut (OK); 26 grand to 2nd great grand nieces and 39 grand to 2nd great grand nephews and his friends.
