So sorry for your loss. Jerry was a dear friend of my husband,Charley. He was always helpful to Charley. I’m thankful for the time Jerry helped me take Charley from St. Mary’s to CR hospital when my husband had a stroke.

I was Jerry’s 7th social studies teacher. He was a delightful kid and grew into a wonderful man. I have fond memories of his sense of humor, kindness to others and curiosity about many things. I’m saddened to learn of his passing, but am comforted he is no longer struggling with illness. May God bless his family.
