He spent a lot of time rodeoing in addition to working for his father and his siblings. He enlisted in the military soon after and was sent to Korea for the 1952–1954 conflict. He was honored for his service to his country with a number of accolades.
He served in the military for three years before being honorably discharged, and then he spent the next 10 years working on the Oahe and Big Bend Dams. Following their 1956 nuptials, Gerald and Bernice Sayler moved to the Sayler farm in the Harrold region.
They grew wheat, sunflowers, corn, and millet on their farm in addition to raising cattle, pigs, and sheep. They had three children: Dean (who later joined them in their farming endeavors), Denea (Ed) King and their offspring Brandon (Ally), Trevor, Lisa, and Kobe, and Darla (Rex) Newling and their offspring Payten and Lane.
Dean thereafter joined his parents in their farming enterprise. In addition to being a founding member of the South Dakota Rodeo Association, Gerald served as the organization’s first bull riding director.
In addition, he held positions on the boards of the Stockgrowers Association, the Veterans of Foreign Wars, the St. Johns Parish Council, the Harrold School, and the original Mid Dakota Rural Water board.
One of the people who lobbied in Washington, D.C., was Gerald. Gerald belonged to three Catholic organizations: the Senior Center, St. John’s Catholic Church in Harrold, and Ss. Peter & Paul Catholic Church in Pierre.
