Jerry was my cousin and I always thought he was a good looking guy and thought he and my father looked alot alike. He was a great guy who was full of fun and always good to watch in action at dart ball games and lawn bowling. Our tours of Miller Brewery were always fun. I still remember my cousin looking so handsome at his marraige to Janice who was a gorgeous bride!! I caught the bouquet!!!
He was just the most kind hearted man to be with and enjoy. He will be remembered as my kind, funny and candy loving cousin! Love to Janice, Mike, Steve and Mark and all the grandchildren and great grandchildren. God Bless you all!!! Cousin, Jean
