Gerald Marvin Shutt


Born in Fall River, MA. Raised in Somerset, MA. Graduated from Somerset High School in 1965. Inducted into the US Army September 1967. After basic training was assigned to Redstone Arsenal, Alabama for AIT. After graduating, was assigned as an instructor at USMMCS on the arsenal.
After separation from the Army in September 1970 I was employed by Raytheon Corp until September 1971 when I was accepted for a technical position with NASA. After training at Goddard Space Flight Center in Greenbelt, I was assigned to the NASA Tracking Station, Cooper's Island, Bermuda. Bermuda is an island in the Atlantic Ocean, east of Cape Hatteras, NC. After my assignment in Bermuda, I was transferred to the NASA Tracking Station at Rosman, NC. I was a Telemetry Technician supporting Apollo, Skylab, Apollo-Soyuz missions as well as satellite data downloads. After those assignments I accepted a position with a startup tech company from Ann Arbor, MI. I started as an Engineering Tech. While assigned remotely in Asheville, NC and Greenville, SC, I received a call from a headhunter representing a tech startup in Palo Alto, CA. After a phone interview I accepted a position as a Field Engineer, stationed in Greenville, SC, where I met and married by wife Kathleen. Our first son Geoffrey was born in Greenville. In 1981, I transferred to Florida to open an office for the company. In 1986, I transferred back to SC, but to Lexington, SC, where our second son, Bradley, was born, and we still reside today. My last employer was NCR Corporation from which I retired from in 2010 as a Systems Engineer. My wife retired in 2018 from Harsco as EHS Manager. Retirement is even better after my wife retired.
