Jerry was my principal at Bear River School and then became the principal at Plumas Elementary School where I worked as secretary. He was a kind and gentle man and we became friends. After he retired from Plumas, he surprised me on Secretary's Day with a beautiful bouquet of flowers and a jar of pomegranate jelly he had made. I have many fond memories of Jerry and his thoughtfulness. My prayers of comfort go out to Dean, Angela and their families. He will be missed very much.
