He received an honorable discharge from the Navy on February 7, 1957. Jerry loved his family. His favorite thing to do was to cook on the grill for his family and spend time with everyone. He never met a stranger and everyone loved to hear his stories of him growing up as a little boy. He loved watching western movies, football, and the Thunder games. He still washed their vehicles by hand if he could. He never took them to a car wash. He enjoyed doing his own yard work. He wouldn’t hire anyone to do his yardwork, he wanted it done his way. He was loved by all who met him and will be missed by many family and friends.
