I met Jerry at Boeing. He was in the transportation department while I was in the maintenance mechanics.
He was definitely a memorable guy! We began playing basketball and softball together. Then golf.
Jerry and I teamed up in a lot of golf tournaments, including many of the management tournaments that Boeing sponsored.
Those times we spent on the golf course, were some of the happiest times of my life. I will treasure those times forever.

I have good and fun memories of Jerry, he was one of my first and most fun to work for bosses I ever had. Also he was street smart and could work through issues amazingly.
I also remember he loved his sports.
A great friend and mentor I will miss.

God bless
