Jerry was one of the best people I have ever known. We got close as we worked together side by side for so many years. He was such a giving and thoughtful man. I know on several occasions he helped many associates in time of need. He always had a smile and was quick to make others laugh and improve their day just by saying "HELLO" . Our regular customers always looked forward to coming in and seeing him and having conversations with him. He was a great mentor to new associates. His Walmart family at store 3430 will miss him greatly and he will always be in our hearts and thoughts daily.
