He and Jean loved to travel on many adventures over the years. They had many good times at their lake house boating and enjoying time on the water with family and friends.

Jean and family I just read about jerry's passing and want to offer my sympathy to you. We have lost contact in the last few years and for that I am truly sorry. I remember the wonderful cook that Jerry was and the time he made that great lunch for us at your house. I know he was a wonderful provider and loved his family so much. My prayers are with you during this time as you grieve his passing.
