My husband and I had the privilege of meeting Jerry through his wife Judy. We had an extremely close friendship with them. Besides being a great husband to Judy, he was a wonderful Father to 3 children. Our memories at Apple Valley will be treasured forever. Much love, Gloria and Steve

Jerry was a good neighbor in Deer Creek - I'll always remember him bringing over a frisbee that my boys were using for a base while playing backyard ball that he found while mowing....Peace to all who loved him.
