Jerry became interested in clocks when he bought an antique mantel clock never knowing one day it would lead him into the time clock and parking business. Jerry was president of Southern Time Equipment Company Inc. for 44 year along with his faithful partner, Norm Hogg, which expanded to South Carolina. Jerry never met a stranger. His wit and laughter would light up a room. He was a self-made business man known for being a fair, sharing employer of his successes. God blessed Jerry for being such a giving loving person. His children and grandchildren were the joys of his life. He loved working with the young people in the Awanas program for many years. He loved his God and his church. Thanks to the wonderful staff at Wil Med Rehab and specially Bob, for the wonderful care and love given to him. Also, to the wonderful staff and doctors at UNC Chapel Hill.
