Jerry was certainly a character and always made me laugh when he came into Walgreens to pick up his wife,Terry, after work. He was quick-witted and always had a story to share with everyone. Often times he would walk the store aisles one by one (at Walgreens) and help the employees straighten the store at the end of the night as we prepared to close. I also won't forget "emptying" my first beer(s) in his driveway either! I know how much Jerry loved his family and he will certainly be missed. My thoughts and prayers are with Jerry's family during this difficult time. Take Care.
