Gerry Hertel

 The Connecticut Accordion Association recently lost a long time member and orchestra member.  Gerry Hertel passed away on October 11, 2020. He was 97 years old.  He graced the orchestra for most of the last 16 years of its existence. An avid accordionist since his youth, he often performed solo at CAA gatherings.

He will be missed.  His memory will forever live on in our hearts and in our music.
