Memories Timeline


  1. We are very saddened to have lost a wonderful neighbor. We enjoyed all our visits with Jerry including our last conversation which was too short. Our prayers & thoughts are with his family at this difficult time.

  2. We will miss you so much Uncle Jerry and we’ll have the beautiful memories of the last time we were together.
    This world will be a lot emptier without you here. Until we can be together again please watch over us.
    Love, Sherry & Jim

  3. It seems like yesterday we were having the time of our lives camping and taking vacations together. We will miss our times together, but we will always have our memories. Gerry, you will be greatly missed by all those who love you and by those who had the pleasure knowing you. He leaves a tremendous legacy in his family. Until we meet again…
    Paul & Norma

  4. Death can never take a good man away, for in the hearts of the people he inspired, the legacy remains and continuous throughout generations.
    Although our hearts are broken that you are no longer here, we look forward to the promise of knowing that when our time comes, we will be reunited. Until then, you will live in our hearts and memories.

  5. Jerry will be greatly missed by me and My kids and Grand kids.
    They all grew up knowing and caring for Jerry and Carol and the entire family.
    We had been best friends for about 50 years. Barbara and I spent wonderful times with them and the rest of the family.
    Rest in Peace my friend.

  6. For as long as I can remember, Jerry and Carol were my second family. I knew that if I ever needed anything, they were the people I could lean on and look to for support. Every major (and minor!) event in my life included them. Jerry, I will miss you more than I can say and my prayers are for your kids and Carol, to have the peace to be able to move forward, knowing that this life is but a flash and eterntity waits where we can all be together again.

    Much love,
    Julie, Andy and our girls

  7. I have heard many times what a wonderful man you are! There is absolutely no doubt you will be dearly missed. Thank you Uncle Jerry for ALWAYS showing me so much love and respect Everytime I seen you! May you find peace and joy and may the Lord bless your family will the strength they need as they adjust to life Without you! I will always remember your beaming smile, gentle eyes and the love and respect you always showed me. Lots of hugs love and prayers!
