I am Jerry’s grandson and remember spending time with him when he lived in Florida. I enjoyed riding his go-kart, going boating and watching the ski shows, the jet skis, swimming in the pool, and watching the thunderstorms with him. I remember him being an avid traveler and showed love to those around him. I’ll remember him saying “boy I tell ya Barbara” in moments of frustration. Love and condolences to the family he left behind!

Many memories of Uncle Jerry and Aunt Barbara. Cindy and Greg always has the big Christmas presents at Wardell. I remember Greg getting a table top pinball machine one year and I think Jerry played with it more than Greg. Jerry would always try to bite our foreheads when we were little. He loved his family and always wanted the best for them.

He was like a second father too me . He enjoyed seeing and doing things . He liked the old horror flicks . He had a great sense of adventure. He loved God , country and family. Rest In Peace Uncle Jerry .
