I can honestly say Jerry was one of the finest human beings I have h the privilege of knowing. We shared many a trip to work at High Island and road conversations were inertesting and fun. We were honored to celebrate his retirement at my ranch and many of the Mobil family helped and participated. A night never to be forgotten just like this Godly and humble soul. Blessings Jerry, pray for us.

I grew up living next door to my Uncle Jerry. One of my earliest memories was a story he would tell us. Some time in his life he had lost the end of his thumb. When he would see one of us sucking our thumb he would show us his thumb and tell us our thumb would look like his if we kept sucking our thumb. I also thought Uncle Jerry was a great man. He was honest, happy, very giving, and always ready to help anyone. He lived his life with Grace and love. He lived with challenges all his life. He is now at rest and I will miss him greatly, however I know that he is in his heavenly home with his family and for that I am at peace

We were so blessed to have had our Dad
In our lives for this long.
He would always make me laugh when he would say it went in one ear and out the other. Our dad had so many good stories to tell. He loved to watch his western channel and he loved to watch the Dallas Cowboys play.
He will be greatly missed by everyone who knew him and loved him. He was a very loving dad.. I know he is with our Mom and the rest of his family .
I love you Dad and I know we will see you again one day.

From your loving daughter Mary
