Jerry loved to travel with his RV group of friends and take trips to Disney World with his grandchildren. He was passionate about serving the Humane Society with his time and energy through volunteer work. He had a great sense of humor and enjoyed some good-natured teasing… he always said, “If I didn’t love you, I wouldn’t pick on you!” Jerry was a giving and loving man. He was a good husband, father, and papaw, and he will be dearly missed by all who loved him.
