While in Orofino Jerry worked as the produce manager at a local IGA; when he wasn't working you would find him on the golf course or refurbishing an old truck. Jerry loved classic cars and old country music, (King of the road was a particular favorite). Jerry moved with his family to Burbank, WA in 1980. He was an avid sports fan and enjoyed watching his boys' sporting events, you would often find him on the Burbank football field running chains and cheering on his boys.
