Jerry and Betty sang in the church choir with me for many years. I loved them both. Jerry continued to come to church until he became ill. He always had a smile. He will be dearly missed. Our prayers are with all of his family. Nancy and Bill

Jerry and I were Troopers in Beaumont, and became very good friends. Jerry and his wife invited us to eat supper one night in their home. She, by far, made the best German Sausage, Sauerkraut, and German potato salad I have ever eaten. These two people were just great to be friends with. Like myself, Jerry has missed his wife for many years. Glad that they are back together. Rest in Peace, my friend.


Our deep felt condolences to Jerry's family & friends. We have missed Jerry very much as he worked his way through his many troubles these last few years. Over the years we connected with him frequently through the Scottish Society meetings & the Townhouse Association, having much fun with him along the way. So now we pray that, at last, he May Rest In Peace!

Rick, very sorry to hear of the passing of your father. I was very close to him at dps and we also worked together at the Marshall office. We also attended lodge together for a few years as he worked in all 3 of my degress. After I retired I move off for about 15 years then came back to sour lake and lost track of Jerry. I now work for the sheriff in liberty county and pass through Bruceville Eddie weekly on my travels. Look forward to seeing y’all at the next fhs reunion...
