While working there he would come to meet and get married to the love of his life, Marie Ena Bazile. Together they had three children: Rachelle, Marie Geralde (aka Baby), and Frederick (aka Ricky).From that point he would go on to open a limousine service which he operated for 17 years. During those years He and Ena would open a second business which would become the first Haitian restaurant in Queens, La Citadelle. After operating La Citadelle for six years he sold both businesses and got together with his brother Reynold and opened La Détente Restaurant & Catering which was the pride of New York’s Haitian community. As the years progressed Gerard and Ena retired and move to Plantation, Florida where Ena passed away in 2018. Gerard has now followed her and fell asleep on Wednesday June 15th at the age of 89.
