Rick-
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.
