The Pyramid Society is saddened to announce the untimely passing of Gerard “Jerry” Dumas on January 8, 2017. Jerry, along with his wife Brenda, of Rose of Cairo Arabians in Peralta, New Mexico, first joined the Society in 2007. Jerry was a beloved member of the New Mexico Straight Egyptian Alliance, and all of the group’s gatherings were made much more enjoyable by his engaging wit, charming personality, and fascinating conversation. Jerry was quick to tell those he met that he was not a “horse person” but was involved with Egyptian Arabians because he treasured his beautiful wife Brenda, and she loved them! At two of the Alliance’s Regional Workshops Jerry was a featured lecturer on the horse business and taxes, and all who were privileged to hear him agreed that he was the finest speaker on the topic they had ever heard. Jerry will be deeply missed and our thoughts and prayers are with Brenda and his family. In lieu of flowers, contributions may be made to The Toby Grossman Indian Alumni Scholarship Fund at the University of New Mexico School Of Law.
