Guestbook

  1. Jerry was a loving father-in-law. He welcomed me into his family with open arms. He loved his family and was so proud of his children and grandchildren. I could not have asked for a better second father. You are so loved, Jerry!

  2. I remember my Uncle Jerry fondly, growing up in the suburbs of Chicago. He was a man who enjoyed life! His outlook always seemed upbeat, his smile seemed to stretch a mile wide. Our family get-togethers always had plenty of laughter. He loved cracking jokes, doing silly impersonations, and had a whole range of laughs, from high pitched giggles to big raucous howls. The man had the loudest sneeze I’ve ever heard.

    Uncle Jerry had a broad knowledge of many subjects, especially geography, his lifelong passion. He could carry on a conversation with virtually anyone. Smartly dressed, proud and upright, he moved through life with a confidence and ease that I always admired. He was a role model, and I will miss him. May his joy and brightness live on among us forever!
