A Veteran Baker and Devoted Father
Original post made by Michele Page, Menlo Park: Downtown, on Oct 14, 2007
I am witing the Menlo Park community to inform them of a pending triple bypass open heart operation for my father Gerald Stagi scheduled for Monday October 15th in the am at The Washingtom Hospital in Freemont. My Father has lived and served The Menlo Park and Atherton Community with his spectacular art creations from the time he was working for his father founder of the pink pastry shoppe on santa cruze ave. menlo park at the young age of 17 to the cakes of today from Gerry's Cakes of Menlo Park on Chestnut street. He has been a career baker all his working life for 50 years and has probablly made a least one of the cakes your family has enjoyed over the years, he fell ill on Monday October 8th and regrets not being able to resume immediately to his work for the week for the love of his trade with the news he wouldn't be leaving the hospital any time before the next week or two after his operation. The point is his daughter, myself, being the fourth generation baker after him I realize the dedication to both family but also to his clients the people of Menlo Park and was wondering if any of you might have a fond memory of him or his cakes to cheer him up in hopes his recovery will be speedy.
