I met Jerry through The Western Film Fair and many Riders in the Sky shows at Tweetsie Railroad. He was a very fine cowboy and a very good man. He will be missed.

I knew Jerry when he worked at his Patterson St. Office - loved to stop by and listen to tales of the old Cowboys - he was a gold mine of fun information. I also enjoyed talking golf with him and again we shared good times.
I am sorry I did not learn of Jerry's passing until today - he will be missed but not forgotten.
