Jerry was a kind man with a contagious laugh who loved to joke around with all who knew him. He was a jack-of-all-trades that could make anything out of anything, creating beautiful masterpieces that looked like they belonged in a shop. He enjoyed making a variety of trinkets; jewelry, windchimes, and model cars/airplanes to name a few. He had a keen interest in motorcycles, particularly Harley Davidson makes, and enjoyed working on cars during his free time. He loved animals, and each of his pets had a special place in his heart. He made sure that they all were showered with affection. To know Jerry was to love him, and his guidance will continue to show in the hearts of everyone who was blessed to love him.
