My wife, Marilyn, and I met Jerry because of our common interest in ballroom dancing. We met at the Dance Country Club at a La Soiree Dance and thereafter looked forward to seeing Jerry at the La Soiree and the Dance Group dances. We have missed him in recent years and are sad to learn of his passing. Rest in peace, Jerry.

Enjoyed getting to know Jerry through the LaSoiree Dinner Dance Club. Glad that he could be there with his dance partner, Sammie Sue Edmondson. I know she brought some joy to him in those years after Dianne had passed away. My condolences to his daughter and to Sammie Sue as I know she will miss him too.
