I remember Jerry as a very happy man. He always had a smile on his face. Jerry and Carmen raised a beautiful family. My kids still call Carmen “Grandma Carmen”. Their son Al is my daughters Godfather. The last time I saw Jerry was at his son Al’s home. They way Al and Tom cared for Jerry with so much love was so touching. Jerry was blessed to have such a caring family.
Rest in peace Jerry. 🙏😢🌻💔

Our memories are of a kind, giving, loving, warm hearted person, you gave my husband Ines one of his jobs inside your store when he was going to college you taught him the art of meat cutting and working inside instead of out in the field’s you told him if you are hungry eat what you want. Than I went to meet him and Carmen and the children love is all I remember from all of them. Their generosity was to the top. One example we all can take away and pass it forward. We love you and until me meet again peace be with you, your friends the Vasquez family

I remember Jerry being such a loving and wonderful man. The day we asked him to be our son's godfather he cried and accepted. He was so happy to be around our son. He made sure that Jj was always taken care of no matter what. We will miss him dearly.
