    I was so happy that Uncle Jerry was able to swing by during my visit in July. He was in good spirits — brought us tomatoes from his garden and gave me some solid advice about a fence. I will miss him very much.

    Becky Whitmarsh on Aug 30, 2018

    I was lucky to know this great man growing up with his daughter Cathy. I swear he couldn't open his mouth without saying something funny. And then I met up with him about a year ago and he never forgot who I was. He made a joke of everything. Boy did he have story's to tell. Once your family gets past the why's and what ifs you will remember him the way he would always want to be remembered. The funny man that always lived life in the moment not in the past. I'm so sorry that he's gone but I'm so thankful that I was blessed to have known him.
