Richard Gere Took Dad to Hometown Diner on His 100th Birthday — He Named Awaited Son after ‘Hero’ Father

Richard Gere had a perfect “hero” father who taught him everything he knew. Although he started his family later in life, the actor did not only learn the principles but replicated them in his fatherhood journey. He remains thankful to his dad and even named his firstborn after him.

“Pretty Woman” Richard Gere may be one of the most successful Hollywood stars, but he came from an ordinary family. In a large family, the actor spent his childhood on a farm in Syracuse, NY.

His mom, Doris, was raised in Brooklyn, the same city she met her husband, Homer Gere. In 1945, the childhood lovers married and moved to North Syracuse to begin a family, which included their five kids.

Despite having a large family due to their kids, Richard, Susan, Joanne, David, and Laura, the couple raised them well, instilling enduring values.

Additionally, Doris, a housewife, and Homer, an insurance salesman, did not have much money, yet they struggled to give their kids the best education.
