Jerry loved life and loved sharing it with his family.  He was known for being a huge jokester.  The family knew that Saturday meant bar-b-que time and that Jerry would have on shorts, sandals, and a wife beater shirt for the occasion.

Jerry’s kids knew that every night they were going to get a text from him that reminded them they were loved but that the grandkids were really a step above them!
