Bachelor Nation has fallen head over heels for The Golden Bachelor star Gerry Turner. Before he was our Golden Bachelor, Gerry had a long and happy marriage to his late wife Toni.
Thanks to insight from Us Weekly, here is the scoop on Gerry Turner and his wife Toni!
Gerry and Toni
Gerry Turner and his wife Toni shared a long marriage that spanned more than 40 years. In 2017, the couple bought their dream house on the lake.
Unfortunately, after this purchase life took a turn when Toni fell ill. Gerry shares, “She had a bacterial infection that infected her kidneys and infected her liver.”
Gerry continues, “And so, I took my wife to the emergency room on July 7, she passed away on July 15.”
The Golden Bachelor’s Journey
Since Toni’s passing in 2017, Gerry has been on his own. Now, in his new journey for love he is paying respects to his late wife.
Gerry has said, “No one’s ever gonna replace Toni, but the love of my daughters and my granddaughters pulled me out of a dark spot.”
In his new journey, Gerry wants to find love again while still honoring his marriage to Toni.
He shares, “That’s what I want, and I know that person’s out there.”
