The sadness we all have is just a reflection of the love we shared for him! The more memories we have, the more tears that fall just show how much we all truly cared and loved him even those of us that now walk a different path. I will always cherish the memories I shared with Jerry. Like the look he had when he met his granddaughters for the first time. Camping, cooking, trips to Amarillo and Breckinridge (BeerCanRidge), holidays, birthdays or even just Sunday dinners just because! Digging drainage lines and taking down satilite dishes, or tree libs! Singing in church, and him breaking out the 8 Tracks and those vinyl records, playing pool, helping to set up the wood shop in Hankamer, each day a blessing, right up to the last chance I had. Each memory cherished! Thank you for the memories!
With Love and respect,

Ron and Pam Gresham

He was the best cook! If you left Jerry's house hungry, it was your own fault!

I will forever cherish the memories we made over the past 22 years. I will never regret the Sundays, vacations, road trips or play dates we spent together. He was the best grandfather a granddaughter could ask for and we will forever live our lives the way he taught us. I'm truly grateful to have known him.

I love you Pawpaw.

My deepest sympathies and condolences to the family.
I know Jerry was a very fine man. He was a dedicated and valued member of the corrosion team at Shell Pipe Line for many years and was one of the guys you could always count on. I have many fond memories of time spent with him out on the pipeline that I will always treasure. A great man.

I've been apart of Jerrys life for 8 yrs. He was a loving and funny person. We had many one on one talks during our coffee times. We shared lots of stories and had lots of laughs. He taught me so much not to mention Bloodymarys. He told me now u can take over this job lol. I had the pleasure to make him one last one the day before he passed.. Papaw you will always be loved and missed until we see each other again. Love, Tina
