For many years Jerry worked as a tool and die maker, first for White Farm in Charles City and then in later years for IMI, located in Mason City. In his free time Jerry was an avid outdoorsman. He enjoyed all aspects of the outdoors especially hunting, fishing, golfing, and camping. Many memories were made with his group of hunting buddies during deer hunting season and playing cribbage.
He will be greatly missed by all.
