Gerard McGrinder was raised in the Bronx, New York by two hard working catholic Irish Immigrants. One of 12 siblings, Gerard had many experiences very unlike those children have today. Despite being raised in conditions that did not provide much financial support, and despite being the first generation in his family to recieve an education beyond the 8th grade, Gerard excelled in school and went on to become a doctor. He also later devoted an immense amount of effort and love into raising his three children, Shea, Liam, and Tess, with his wife Paddi.
