Most people are familiar with Richard Gere’s name. The renowned actor has starred in numerous films and is beloved by millions throughout the world.
Richard Gere’s most appealing quality is that he still remembers to commemorate his father’s birthday like any other ordinary person! What a wonderful individual.
On Sunday, Richard Gere’s father, Homer Gere, of North Syracuse, celebrated his 100th birthday in the company of his son and other loved ones.
At a café in Armory Square, the group commemorated the centennial of his birth. Richard Gere, his son, was in the spotlight at the event.
Pastabilities, one of the square’s oldest restaurants, hosted the birthday celebration. Since 1982, the restaurant has been open. The restaurant must have been overjoyed to have a Hollywood actor in their midst since photos of the veteran actor, his father, and restaurant personnel were posted on social media.
They most likely posted after the party ended, around 8 p.m. on Sunday. “Richard Gere stopped in to Pasta’s tonight to celebrate his father’s 100th birthday,” stated the caption.
Richard Gere was born and raised in the city of Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. North Syracuse High School was his alma mater, and he graduated in 1967. Homer Gere was an insurance salesman who used to volunteer with the North Syracuse fire department. He also volunteered for Meals on Wheels throughout his life. He continues to live in North Syracuse.
Richard still travels to the area to see his father on a regular basis. Doris Gere, his mother and Homer’s wife, died in 2016.
Alejandra Gere is Richard Gere’s wife, and the couple married in 2018. Alexander and a younger boy born in 2020 are the couple’s two sons. Because the couple has chosen to keep their children out of the spotlight, even his youngest son’s name is unknown.
