I was honored to have Jerry in my life. He became part of my family and he made me part of his. He was a very loving man. If You knew Jerry then You knew that, and if You didn't know him I want You to know that. His family meant so much to him. Any time there was an accomplishment he would beam with pride. And when there was sorrow he would swoop in to do all he could to make things better. The day I buried my mom he swooped in and tried to do anything he could to make the day easier for my family. The day his granddaughter was born, I could see it on his face that she jumped right into his heart. He was a great guy, he was loved, and he will be missed.

Lived across the street from him and his parents for years. Wonderful guy, great family. Prayers for strength during this difficult time.

I ran with Jerry all those years ago in junior high and had wondered often about him. So sad to find him this way...
Rest in love
