Uncle Gerald Crasta (Jerry) was always warm , affectionate and friendly.
Uncle Jerry and Aunty Leena are my Godparents and I have fond memories of visiting both of them with my family at their Managalore home.
After moving to the US they kept in touch . Now on his sad demise we miss him. At this moment of sorrow, I offer my sincerest prayers for Uncle Jerry's soul to rest in peace.
My heartfelt condolences to Aunty Leena ,Brian, Belinda, Mayola, Colin, Glen and their spouses , children and grandchildren.
May our prayers ease the pain of your loss.

Kaveri , Arun Crasta and family

Uncle Jerry was a very warm- hearted, affectionate person and easily accessible. He not only mentored his business, but was a devoted family man - a pillar of strength and inspiration to his wife ( Aunty Lena) and his five children, and his ensured to keep in touch with relatives and friends.
Uncle Jerry's passing away has left a big void in the lives of his immediate family members ( including extended family), relatives and friends .
Our heartfelt condolences go out to Aunty Lena, Brian, Belinda, Mayola, Colin and Glen and their extended families. May Uncle Jerry's soul rest in peace.

I have only fond memories of my dearest Uncle Jerry, always warm, loving, friendly, smiling, hospitable. A truly kind & generous spirit, enjoyed life to the fullest & shared the same with all who had the privilege to know him as family or friend. He was a great husband to our dear Aunt Leena & a great & model father to his five proud & accomplished children. He was the last of the senior Kinnigoli Crasta family stalwarts, & with him a generation has ended. He bore his sickness bravely & silently, confident of his heavenly call to eternity at the end of his jubilant race on earth. We his dearest & close family will surely miss him but our faith gives us the sure hope that we will all meet one day in heavenly Jerusalem, where there is no death nor tears. May his soul rest in eternal peace.
His beloved nephew,
Franklin Crasta
