He returned to Miami and married in 1952. He built many buildings around Miami houses, offices, store fronts, warehouses and terminals on the Miami River. Jerry passed on Monday, February 5, just shy of his eighty-eighth birthday. His family was with him these past few weeks and he is survived by his wife, Anna Mary of 66 years, all 11 children, and 12 grandchildren.
