I have more memories of Jerry than I could possible recount here. From Little League Baseball to driving to high school together and graduation there are so many. I was really saddened to hear of his passing. Please accept my sincere condolences and as God welcomes him into his heavenly kingdom may you all find peace in knowing that he is free from the pain and illnesses he suffered.

Have not seen Jerry in many years but I knew Jerry very well when I worked for his father for many years. To his family and brother Ben I am sorry for your loss.

Lori, Kari Ann, Lilly and Robyn .. my deepest sympathies to all of you.

It was only within the past 9 years I got to know Jerry and he soon became a good and trusted friend, reminding me of the friends I once had while growing up in Boston. We easily bonded with our love of sports and would talk at length (boring everyone else around us) about sports trivia and compete to "one up" each other ... I will truly miss that.

Rest peacefully my friend and be assured that your family will always be in my prayers.

We played football, little league baseball and were all around good friends throughout our youth. He was a little on the chubby side so he made a good blocker. He was also the class clown and I don't think he had one enemy or anybody that did not like him. My first memory of him was in Mrs Witt's first grade class at Travis Elemetary when my brother and I brought a pogo stick for show and tell and he said it would make a good pretend machine gun to mow down the Germans at recess. Jerry, you lived a good life and have left a powerful legacy.

Lori and family,

Debbie and I would like to express our condolences at the passing of Jerry. Growing up in the same neighborhood with Jerry, I lost many a wrestling match to him underneath those giant pecan trees at his home on Ruea St. Seems like only yesterday he was teasing me that the only reason he and his running buddy, Nicky Athens let me hang out with them was because his Mom thought I was a good kid....like we never gathered at the Dairy Queen to go throw eggs or do a little toilet papering. He was the king of paper football in study hall and organizer of band aid football on cructhes in the Gopher bowl after we all broke our legs and tore up the knees our Junior year. That resulted in "Doc the trainer" catching us in the act and we had to give 3 licks to each other. And it seemed like every week he was telling our English teacher that we had to leave class early for football pictures.....don't think she ever caught on. And finally he was always telling me he was going to steal Debbie away from me...thank goodness for you and me he never did! I know, you and your family also have fond memories of Jerry that will bring you a smile in this sad time. Again, we are so sorry for your loss of Jerry and know you will miss him.

Debbie and Terry Gearhart

I remember Jerry as a man of integrity and hard work. He had a great sense of humor. And a passion for life. He was also an All District Lineman for the 1970 GPHS Football District Champions Team! He was a great guy and will greatly missed.
