I worked with Jerry way back when at Wilkins and Wheatons. He was always full of energy and good humor. We had some great times. So sorry to learn of this. Great loss, especially to Anita. May he rest in peace.

To Steve, Barb and Sue, Our deepest condolences to you and your extended family. Jerry's kindness was a true reflection from your Dad and Mom. I remember running into Jerry many years ago at his City office and he took a few minutes to chat. We are so sorry for your loss. - Vicki Virgo Okuniewski and the Virgo family.

Jerry was one of the finest people I ever met. A good man through and through. It was Jerry who gave me these words to live by: "Every day's a holiday, every meal a feast". I had never heard that before but it stuck and helps me often. Jerry was kind, thoughtful and simply a great guy. They say you can't pick your family or your neighbors, but you can pick your friends; and Jerry was a friend of mine. I will miss him dearly.

Growing up I always admired my cousin Jerry’s kindness to those of us younger than him. He displayed courage serving in Viet Nam and I remember him asking his parents to share his letters home so we could know more of his experience first hand. While the extended family did not see each other often Jerry was always one of my favorites. Anita and family…Kathy and I are sorry for your loss.
