So sorry and shocked to hear about Jerry's passing. Grew up a "West Bomford Brat" and Jerry and his home and family were always open to me and mine. Will be thinking of you Diane and family as you go through this loss. If Dad were here, he would have certainly been a part of Jerry's Masonic Service just as Jerry was a part of his.  Maybe they're getting to hang out again!:)  That's a pleasant thought.💗 Love to you all.

So sorry to hear about Jerry. We hung around together for a while after Jerry was released from the Marines. Had some great times, with him, Bob Marine, and a few others. Jerry was pretty good at pool and billiards as I remember. Will miss him. Always a pleasure to see him. Was always gracious and smiling.
