Guam - Governor Felix Camacho and Congresswoman Madeleine Bordallo issued statements on the sudden passing of Pacific War Museum owner and former KUAM Radio disc jockey John Gerber. The governor recalled Gerber's acts of hospitality over the years as he feds thousands of soldiers at various gatherings he hosted at his home in Chalan Pago, calling him a true American hero.
"We have truly lost an icon and truly we have lost a servant leader," Camacho wrote. "He will always be remembered also for the fact it was his conviction marched from Andersen to Navy Base, pulling a banner, demanding the lawmakers change this form Marine Drive to Marine Corps Drive."
Congresswoman Bordallo added that "JG" was an effective advocate for the island's veterans and was a friend to many leaders in the Marine Corps.
