Rick, Terri and extended family,

The Sinks' family offer our deep condolences for the loss of Uncle Jerry. I have many fond experiences, including learning to ski and riding motorcyles at Snow Lake. The photos provide for great memories as well. I wish you much understanding during this difficult time. You will be in our thoughts and prayers.
All our Love,
The Sinks

My condolences to you and your family, as well as that of your sister.
Your dad got me my first job after high school- Feld Truck Leasing. Turned into Gelco, then Penske over the years as buyouts happened. I bought a large quantity of tools from Jerry, and was always happy to see him.
I ultimately used this income to pay for college education (your dad helped send me to college). Anyway- I am sad to see that he has passed away, and wanted you to know that he had nothing but a positive impact in my life, and more than you may have known.

addition: I met Jerry when he first started his Mac Tool truck route at Rice Olds on Bluffton Rd in 1960, 61 or 62. I remember he always had shorts & a T shirt on and a big smile

I bought tools from Jerry for many years. I loved the Mac Tools and Jerry too. He was an icon around Fort Wayne with us Bodymen & Mechanics. He was a good man.
