Jerry was a great and fun and loving man. He love of his family and grand kids unreal. I spent many years with Jerry in my younger years when Jennifer and I ran around together. He always had something to say and it was just never Hi. To the family I am sorry for your loss and may God comfort you in the days ahead. But always remember Jerry would not want you to cry about it but remember all the good times and laughter that was brought by him.

To Jerry's family you have my deepest sympathy. I got to know him better the last few years. He lived abt 5 miles east of our place. He made me a beautiful cross out of metal that I will always cherish. Such a pleasant person. He would visit with everyone. May he rest in pease.
