July 18, 1938 - May 17, 2015Beloved husband, father, grandfather, brother, uncle, and friend left us six months after the tragic loss of his adored wife Kristin. Survivors include children Scott (Kara), Brent (Pamela), Kim (Kyle), Shannon, seven grandchildren, his cousin, nieces, nephews, and many friends whose lives he brightened. An attorney by training, his enthusiasm for the outdoors fueled tireless advocacy on behalf of the environment and water policy. His passion was the flow of rivers and the beauty they brought to his dear family and friends he shared it with. By his own admission he had "white water in his veins". Jerry's love for his family, "water" and friends is immeasurable and will be remembered as his greatest gift to all of us.
