He also leaves behind many nieces and nephews.
Jerry will be remembered fondly as a wonderful husband, father, grandfather, brother, and uncle. He had a great laugh, smile, and sense of humor.

    So sorry to Hear of your husband and Dads Passing. He was a wonderful man. My memory of him was back at Holy Saviour. Him and I and a group of people would count money and help with the selling of the tickets to make money for the church. Many a Tuesday night I spent talking to him. He always had a smile and made me laugh. My prayers are with you and your family at this time. I was so shocked when I went to church a few Sundays ago. I saw his name in the bulletin. I hope you are doing well Judy. Thinking of the family at this time. With Love, Betty Wenger
