RIP Tadd Gero ’08

There have been several emails received about the recent passing of Tadd Gero ’08. Tadd passed away Tuesday morning from a resistant strain of pneumonia. His mother shares that memorial services will be held for Tadd in October.

“On October 3 at 1 pm there will be a Memorial for Tadd in Hudson, New York. It’s being held at Time & Space Limited 434 Columbia Street an arts and theatre center that Tadd used to work at, thanks to the generosity of Linda Mossman, who was a second mother to him. Feel free to share any thoughts or memories of Tadd even if it is totally spontaneous and you’re moved to do so when there.”

From an all-campus email:

I regret to inform you that Tadd Gero, a recent alum, passed away on August 17. Those of you in the classes of 2010 and 2011 may have known Tadd while he was here, as he graduated in 2008. Tadd graduated as a theater major after transferring from Simon’s Rock College. While on campus he was involved in campus activities including reporting for the Argus. Upon graduation Tadd worked as a reporter for The Independent Newspaper in Hudson New York and continued his involvement with theater.

A memorial for Tadd is planned for October 3rd at 1 pm in Hudson New York at Time & Space Limited 434 Columbia Street. The family has asked that in lieu of flowers donations be made to TSL, P.O. Box 343, Hudson, NY 2543 in Tadd’s name.

    He was one of the first people I met when I got on campus my freshman year. I didn’t know him well, but I will always remember his warm and friendly smile that autumn day outside of the Butterfields.

    I never really knew Tadd, but I saw him act, I think, and he generally seemed cool… This is just too sad. Rest in peace.

    This is incredibly sad. I didn’t get any emails, were they sent out to all students? I knew him from a playwrighting class and he was brilliant.
