Jerry and I were classmates at Eagle Grove High School, then both graduated in engineering from Iowa State, and Jerry was an usher at my wedding in Marion 53 years ago and then we attended he and Connie's wedding a little later that year in Cedar Rapids. And I knew Connie's brother Curt in college and also when he lived in Waterloo until his death. Some people stand out above others in our lives and Jerry was always one of them. Always a delightful person and one who set great examples for living our lives. I last visited briefly with him in August when we both attended a noon gathering of classmates in Eagle Grove with Lynn also being there. Regret not spending more time with him then, but certainly was fortunate to have known Jerry in his earlier years, although we were not together often after college graduation. I'm certain he was content with this life and is now happy to be together again with Connie.
