His reunion of his Vietnam buddies and their wives was always a highlight of each year in September. Brothers forever.
Jerry was a man of integrity, a man if his word and a devoted husband, Dad and Pops. He loved the Lord and His word. The Westlake Baptist Church family meant so much to him. He was at home where he was serving.
