I knew Jerry at DCHS in Glendive. Very sorry for your loss. Sorry I missed the Obit in the Standard or I would have been there on the 6th. Photo from 2007 reunion via Dennis Hayford. Mark

My condolences to your family. Although I did not know Jerry personally, his name popped out to me as I read the paper. My great Grandmother, Lettie Brake Bradshaw, was raised on the Harpster Ranch near Glendive in the late 1880´s and my Grandfather, Byrle Bradshaw, was born in 1910 and also lived on the ranch. I am wondering if Jerry may be an ancestor to these Harpsters that took my great Grandmother in as an infant and changed her life.
