We had the privilege of meeting Jerry at Lifetime Fitness Center in Coon Rapids. We were beginning to learn to play Pickleball together. We met many others that all grew to love this crazy sport! We could always depend on Jerry to keep up laughing at ourselves while trying our best to make improvements in our game. We also realized what a small world it was when we met Jerry and Barb at Eaglebrook Church in Anoka! We know that Jerry is now resting peacefully in God’s care playing perfect Pickleball with no pain or limitations that he faced here on Earth! Al and Linda Ostlund

We have amazing, awesome memories of yearly 4th of July celebrations that will keep his spirit alive in our hearts. I imagine Jerry’s spirit will show up at the Lakehouse for many years to come. We are so sorry and share your sadness.
