It was always a good thing to be around Jerry, there were 8 Jerrys in our senior class I am so glad he was one, we always greeted each other by Jersey Bull. The one that’s for sure he’s in Heaven with all who’ve gone on before, there’s no one any better and will surely be missed. RIP my friend.

Sherry, and to his wife and children, so very sorry. I spoke to him a couple of years ago. We planned to have coffee and talk next time I was in Irvine; not very often. He shared his life adventures; spoke of his faith, family and loved and was proud of his band. Wish I could have heard them. Please accept my deepest sympathy!
