Ger Andlinger, 15, son of Jeanne Dailey Andlinger and Gerhard R. Andlinger of Aspen, Colo., and Greenwich, Conn., passed away on May 8, 2011.
Ger was a graduate of the Aspen Country Day School, where he was a member of student government and was the theatrical lead in the school’s annual play. He formerly attended St. David’s School in New York. At the time of his passing, Ger was a sophomore at Loomis Chaffee School in Windsor, Conn. At Loomis, he also participated in theater and student government, was elected class president by his classmates and played on the school’s lacrosse and water polo teams. An adventurer who loved the outdoors, he also excelled in downhill skiing, ocean surfing and scuba diving.
He is survived by his adoring parents; his loving brothers, Merrick and Tristan; sisters Nicole Linn and Margaux Maas; sister-in-law Linny Andlinger; brother-in-law Robert Maas; grandmother Martha Beard Walton; aunts Sallie Dailey Donner and Suzann Fisher Dailey; cousin Taylor Donner; nieces Vail, Chantal and Estelle; and nephews Nick and Bodie. He will also be missed by innumerable friends in Connecticut, Aspen, Florida and around the world, which he circumnavigated over the years with his parents and family members on the family’s sailboat.
A private service will be held at the family home in Aspen on Sunday, May 15. In lieu of flowers, the family requests donations in Ger’s name to the Theophile Outreach Center: Attn: Joel Bastien; 249 E. 88th St.; Brooklyn, NY 11236.
