I first met Jerry at Schnell's restaurant on a Thursday evening which is Band night. I remember Jerry coming up to me and asking me to dance. As time and years followed we shared quite a few dances. I found myself seeing him sitting at his table and I myself at times would go over to him and ask HIM to dance. And of course he most graciously did. He loved to dance, I'm sure as much as he loved playing his harmonica. Jerry will truly be missed by myself and so many others. May you Rest In Peace Jerry. God Bless!

I am so saddened by the passing of Mr. Jerry. He was such a sweetheart from the first day I met him nearly 6 years ago when we opened up Schnells on Thursday nights for dancing and singing with the band. Mr. Jerry played his harmonica and it became a Thursday night tradition. ❤ He asked me to dance and how could anyone say no to that sweet man. I'll never forget when John came up and Mr. Jerry said "Who's that?" When I said my husband, he said "You want me to knock him out for you?" LOL We even recorded a CD with him and the band. It was love at first sight for me. When we vacationed, he was the only one I bought a souvenir harmonica for. Not a Thursday will go by that I won't miss his sweet soul. I bet he's playing harmonica up in heaven with the angels and dancing on streets of gold. RIP Mr. Jerry. I and your "Schnells Family of Friends" love and will never forget you.
