Gerald Dyess wasn't their biological father, but for the four young children that became part of his life when he married their mother, he became Dad.

Taking on that responsibility had to have been daunting, but Gerald was the man for the job and still is. And those kids still know that he's always going to be there. And not just for them, for their children and for anyone who is fortunate enough to cross his path.

We learned of Gerald's kindness and generosity in his nomination letter we received from his daughter, Hillary Hamilton, and seeing the love she felt for him made it an easy choice to name Gerald this week's recipient of the Kiss Country Caught in the Act Award!

Let me start by saying my dad married my mom when we were little kids, there were 4 of us, and he took us in and raised us as his own. We weren’t the easiest to deal with, but he always loved us unconditionally. Fast forward he’s now the best pawpaw to our children you could ever ask for. He was in the hospital for a long time with Guillian Barre, we didn’t know if he was going to make it, they said he wouldn’t walk again, and he proved them wrong. He wanted to play basketball with his grandsons. He’s always there for any and everyone that needs him. He helps out at the church, he never says no anytime someone needs him, he’s just there. If any of us call on him for anything, you can bet he will be there. Whether it’s picking the kids up from school, going to their ballgames/ practices, taking them to the dr. He’s just the best dad and grandpa and just all around great person and he needs to know that it doesn’t go unnoticed. I don’t think he could ever be thanked enough for being the man he is. He’s so deserving of this and so much more.

Gerald Dyess, because you've been 'Caught in the Act' the gang at Silver Star Smokehouse have a $100 Gift Certificate for you and the family to come have dinner!

Take a listen to the phone call we made to Gerald to let him know that he was this week's Caught In The Act Award recipient.
