Uncle Jerry always loved being around his family, especially during the holidays. His healing plates of food are legendary. He had the greatest sense of humor and made us laugh every time he spoke!!! He loved Westerns, war movies, and the Denver Broncos. My funnest memories are of him, me, my sister and my uncle Gene playing endless games of Badminton in the front yard of my grandparents home on Maryland Ave in the heyday of the late 70s. He was a kind and gentle soul.
