Jerry was a great man and always took time out of his day to sit and chat with me when I visited his branch. I enjoyed learning industry knowledge from him over the last 3 years. He will be greatly missed but never forgotten. Rest Easy.

I will never forget Jerry, I will miss my friend. Jerry will be greatly missed in the Electrical Industry. Jerry was the very best at taking off complicated power takeoffs and at pricing design build projects. Jerry would always make me laugh and could make lite of any circumstance. I will never forget our Las Vegas light fair trip. I will continue to pray for his family in this trying time. I pray for God's peace. As Jerry would always say "ROLL TIDE"!

I works with Jerry for many years. I was his CSR and he always took care of me . He was very fair, both at work and the many side jobs he hired me for around his house. We always took jabs at each other for fun. I would often say " I can't do it all Jerry". He would reply " Just do your share or Bite Me". He was not fond of squirrels so I put a stuffed one in his desk. I really do miss Jerry and not only was he a great boss , he was a good friend.

Jerry, you have always been and always will be part of my heart and soul. I will miss our texts and talks that we have had over the last years. I will miss your constant "ROLL TIDE" and when I would say something great about Bama, you always responded "That's my girl."
RIP my sweet.

Jeremy, Rachel, Cyndi, Cheyenne, I am so sorry that you have lost a wonderful, funny, smart, silly, and sweet man. We talked a lot about how you were all doing, and he was SOOOO proud of all of you. He will always be looking down at all of us with that funny, sweet smile.

Jerry was a giant in our industry and very respected. I was lucky enough to work with him on projects over the last 5 years and he taught me a lot. A great guy that was always in a good mood, he will be missed. Jeremy and family - I am so sorry for your loss!

I have enjoyed knowing Jerry for around 40 years. His first wife Janet worked with me at Noland co. in Ft. Walton Beach. Jerry first called on me when he worked for Eastern Wire company back in the early 80's and although we have been competitors in the electrical business, we have always had a great friendship. I am thank-full that I was able to see him at the hospital . He will be missed.

I worked closely with Jerry the past 14 years. What a great guy with a big heart. He was fun to be around and was always a man of his word. I had many fun times both at work and in social settings with Jerry. He will be missed personally and by the entire electrical community.
