Gerald was born on September 30, 1946 to the late Robert and Viola Naylor from Frederick, Maryland. He retired from the U.S Navy as a Chief Warrant Officer. The Lord called him home on March 19, 2018. Gerald is survived by his wife, Dorothy; a daughter, Kwainea Stith of Norfolk; and a son, Mathie Chesson, of Suffolk.

Robert Plowman, BM2 I have looked for Gerry for about 10 years, could not find him, this is certainly not how I wanted to. I served under Gerry on the Guadalcanal, we rescued 2 boats that broke Moore off the coast of Beirut in 83, helped me get through missing the birth of my son the day after I arrived in Beirut. We had many , many talks about things, I looked at him as an older brother, Gerry helped me to be a better Sailor, Man, and a better person! I want his wife and children to know Gerry was one hell of a leader, teacher, confidant, friend ! My heart goes out to the Natlor family, I will be passing through Virginia on our road trip to Fla, I would like to pay my personal condolence’s to you. God Bless you all, Geaven has one of the best

Linda My deepest Sympathy goes out to the family, losing a love one in death is a very trying time. Please find comfort in knowing what the bible says about the opportunity of seeing our dear love ones again @ Act 24:15 under the very best conditions @ Revelation 21:3 & 4. Please visit JW.ORG for more encouragement and hope from GOD’S word during this difficult time.

Carolyn Naylor-Ambush Uncle Gerald and I spoke frequently over the last few weeks, Unsure if he was trying to prepare me for his transitioning or wanted confirmation the family would be okay once he transitioned. We both laughed a few times saying “ Us Naylor’s always stick together”. Nothing will change.Aunt Dot, Kwainea and Mathie, I know your hurting but remember Uncle Gerald is with our Heavenly Father and our Heavenly Father is with each of you. Turn to God for comfort with the knowledge that He will bring you through. It’s okay to cry, God will bring light to your darkness. “ Weeping May endure for a night but JOY comes in the morning “ ( Psalm 30:5) Have courage. It will be morning soon.

Carolyn Naylor-Ambush Uncle Gerald and I spoke frequently over the last few weeks. Unsure if he was trying to prepare me for his transition or wanted confirmation, the family would be alright and would continue to support each other as the Naylor family has continuously done through the years. Aunt Dot, , Kwainea and Mattie, the pain may be deep but remember, Uncle Gerald is with our Heavenly Father, and our Heavenly Father is with each of you.. It’s okay to cry, but know that God will bring light into your darkness. “ Weeping May endure for the night, but JOY comes in the morning” ( Psalm 30:5). Have courage, it will be morning soon. Love you all and remember, my phone is always on........

Diana Chesson When I met Gerald, we immediately hit it off , as we both loved gospel music and talked about our spirituality. He was a tough cookie, but he truly loved his family. He asked me to pray for him a couple of nights ago and I am glad that he allowed me the opportunity. I am sure that he is in Heaven watching over us now.

Mathie Chesson Gerald was always a supportive father, very family oriented and has always respected my wishes. He always made sure that we had what we needed. He cared so much about his family, he had an open door in his home if you needed food or a place to stay. He will be greatly missed.
