Jerry was born in Canton, Pa. and graduated from Canton High School and Pennsylvania State University. He worked at IBM for 32 years in the Federal Systems Division spending time in Endicott, N.Y., Huntsville, Ala. and Owego. His early work focused on the Space Program supporting NASA and the Apollo missions as a software and systems manager and continued with other Federal programs until his retirement in 1990 as a member of IBM's Quarter Century Club.
Jerry is survived by his loving wife, Barbara, and their four children, Carolyn (Dale) Campbell of Owego, N.Y., Daniel (Patricia) Innes of West Newbury, Mass., Jeffrey (Camilla) Innes of Scottsdale, Ariz., and Michael (Sarah) Innes of Richmond, Va.; his four brothers, Jon (Judy) Innes of Bethlehem, Pa., Tom (Karen) Innes of Scottsdale, Ariz., Steve (Debi) Innes of Canton, Pa., and Ben (Kathy) Innes of Lock Haven, Pa.; and his grandchildren Katie, Jimmy, David; Brendan, Trevor; Sean, Kiki; Judson, Laurence and Charles.
Inquisitive and self-reliant, Jerry modeled a life-long pursuit of learning which he instilled in those around him. Jerry was an avid reader, a master of crossword puzzles and an avid sports fan who enjoyed an occasional game of golf and game of chess with his grandchildren.
