    We are very sorry to hear of Jerry’s passing. We always could count on him sitting in the front row at Bingo at the American Legion Post 91. We will miss his smile and wit when we can get together again. Condolences to the family, take care and blessings.

    Great memories of Worshiping, Praying, and Studying Gods word with Jerry. His dedication, faithfulness, and love for Jesus, was a great blessing to me and to the church. He always added not only his wisdom but his humor. Our thoughts and Prayers continue for Jerry’s precious family. I’m going to miss you my “Buddy” but look forward to seeing you in Heaven.

    To one of the most blessed of our Christian family. Jerry will be missed so very much. Our love and prayers reach out to Carol, Julie, ;and Jerry Jr.. It was a joy knowing Jerry and I personally sense the great loss his departure brings me. Looking forward to the Grand Reunion Day when the “dead” in Christ are reunited in Heaven!

    Who could ever forget Jerry & Carol (Little Red) who owned the CB Shop next too Cranes Cafe’ in South Mount Vernon? Sent a lot of time and cash there buying new stuff to deck out and upgrade our CB radios. Most of us had home based units along with our mobile units. Then we would go to weekend camp outs or go over the hump to Ellensberg Rodeo, but it was always fun. Its been many years since those good times, We got rid of our radios, but at times, we wish we had the old days back.Thanks for the memories Jerry and Carol. Along with many others. I often wonder where everyone is and what they are doing now.

    As we used say on the CB, you have gone “10-10” (Not broadcasting, but still listening). Many good memories of all the help and transactions….was always willing to help. Nice guy~~R.I.P

    I had the privilege of being a part of Jerrys family for around 45 years. He had a great Funny personality and I loved him very much. I wish I were not so many miles away now so I could pay my respects and tell what this man (and his family) has meant to me.
    You will be greatly missed by all who knew you.
    Love you.

    Forever to me the Strongest and Goofiest man.
    The light of your eyes when you smiled and laughed, and your great big hugs, and that comforting smell of you mixed with cologne has been with me my whole life. You were more than a Grandpa to me, you were my Dad. I will forever take you with me, everywhere I go. I love you, Pappy.
