Not sure what to say?

Pam and Paige - One of our favorite memories is from when the girls were first playing with Firebirds and one of them 'wasn't feeling well' before a game. Almost in unison Jerry and Tony said (paraphrasing of course) "Michael Jordan had his best game ever with the flu and a fever of 103!!". Tony always loved watching the games with Jerry and talking sports and about who they both knew from each other's high schools 'back in the day'. :)

On a more serious note, you were...

Thinking of you and the Taylor kin at this most difficult time. Jerry had spunk and was always playful and kidding around even as a young boy. Love to you all, Jo Hartwell White (cousin) and son, Conner

So sorry to hear about Cousin Jerry. I hope your hearts will be filled with happy memories of him. I remember him when he was a "little kid" and y'all would come down to the Mississippi coast in Biloxi. Hmm...something about swimming in the river, eating watermelon and making homemade ice cream...glad to hear that he stayed young at heart. Love to you all, Janet Hartwell Purvis.

We love you and we are praying for you and your family. He was such an amazing man who always warmed our hearts.

Pam and Paige, Our hearts go out to you! We wish we could be there for you but because of the times we are in it is not feasible. Jerry was always there for anyone who needed help and he always had a smile on his face in doing so! He will be greatly missed and we know he would want everyone to be celebrating a life well lived and not to mourn, and I don’t think it is any coincidence that today is the feast day in the Catholic Church of St. Jerome. With love Tim Morris (Moss) and Mike...

As the days and weeks pass, and as you return to life's routine, may you continue to feel comforted by the love and support of family and friends.

Pam and Paige; We were so sorry to hear about Jerry ! Our hearts are with you always !
Bill, Sandy and family

Pam & Paige, we are truly sorry for your loss. Jerry was a great friend. Always positive and always fun to be around. Great memories that will live on forever. Love Cliff & Reggie Dienberg

So sorry for your loss.

Pam please know that I am praying for you and Paige. God loves you!

Jerome A. "Jerry"'s Obituary

Jerome A. "Jerry" Taylor 62 of Lombard IL. Beloved Husband of Pam nee Lellios. Loving father of Paige Taylor. Dear son of Helen and the late John Taylor. Fond brother of Joan (Tom) Lampo and Jeff (Jean) Taylor. Dear uncle and nephew of many.

Jerry fought a 55 year battle with diabetes. He never let the disease define or limit him. His fighting spirit and joy for life inspired all that knew and loved him. He was a “ big kid” who loved the Bears, Cubs and Bulls – win or lose. He also loved practical jokes, margheritas, parties (the bigger the better) and most of all his daughter Paige whom he would literally drop anything for. He was Mr. Mom, and loved life most when his yard was full of kids from the neighborhood running through sprinklers and sliding down slip and slides . He lived to watch Paige play volley ball, soccer, and anything else – he never missed a game or a practice unless he was in the hospital. Jerry was a guy you wanted to know – he made all of us better people.

In Lieu of flowers Memorials to Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation, www.jdrf.org appreciated.
