We were friends thru Paul Olliges and the M3 singles group. The last couple of years, Jerry helped me find the better craft beer places around town. I'm missing our brew sessions. Thanks, Jerry!

Jerry has been a good friend to me and my wife, Judy for many years. He sure was a good man; I cannot think of one negative thing to say about him. He will surely be missed. P.S. He was my electrician, beer and baseball buddy. Sincere condolences to his family.
