Jerry was always the glue that held everything together with the best sense of humor. My children and I thought the world of him! One of the best men I ever knew. Much love from our family to you❤️

We are so sorry to hear about Jerry's death. He was a good friend, always friendly, always smiling. I knew Jerry from the time we were just boys, but got to know him much better when he ran Pop-A-Top across the highway at Dora, and we visited frequently during those years. We know he missed Barbara terribly. Keeping you all in our thoughts and prayers!
