Carol and family:
What wonderful memories we have of this special man! He has forever touched our hearts and brought much love. We have enjoyed many RV trips with Jerry & Carol, all of them involving ice cream, games and lots of fun. May Jerry forever get to eat his favorite flavor of ice cream - orange pineapple. We have brought in many new years together in some interesting places.
I know he is in a much better place with no pain (except maybe being there with my dad) but we will still miss him greatly. We consider ourselves lucky and very blessed to be a part of his and his families lives!
Love and hugs to all of you!

Rest in peace "dad"

Carol, Rick, Kirk, Scott and families,
So very for the loss of Jerry. Baker and Sons Construction was a long time client and we developed great friendships as well. Jerry was a talented and kind guy that loved his family so very much.
Sorry that I will be unable to attend the funeral but you will be in my thoughts during this very sad period of time.

I'm so very sorry to hear of Jerry's passing. There are so many good memories from the Stadium Dr neighborhood. It was a great place to grow up with wonderful neighbors. Dad always enjoyed visiting with Jerry and talking "building" with him. Prayers of comfort and peace for all. God Bless.

Carol and family,
Our thoughts and prayers are with you during this difficult time. It was a pleasure to work with Jerry over the years. We are so sorry we can’t be there, as we are in our home in Florida until next week.
God be with you and your family

Carol & Family,
So many good memories of Jerry and the boys taking charge and getting the funeral home
built for me there in Huntington. Very professional, and easy to work with and excellent work. You all have my sympathy and were very blessed to have a wonderful husband, father and grandfather. My thought and prayers are with you Carol. My wife, Linda died in 2017 and I know first hand how difficult this is for all of you. I am in Florida for the winter or I would be there. Hang on to your faith, it will get you through this difficult period. Be thankful for all the memories. Keeping you all in my thoughts and prayers.
