Karen and I are saddened to learn of Jerry's passing. When visiting with him at church or at the Clinic he was always jovial and upbeat. He would sometimes tell me about his hunting trips--I know how much he loved the outdoors. May your sorrow be tempered by pleasant memories and knowing that he is in God's loving embrace. Sincere condolences, Steve and Karen Shircel

My memory of Jerry will always be how great of a son he was. He was with his Dad, who we called Uncle Eddy even though I think he was our Great Uncle, a lot and together they were a hoot! Add the ton of memories and fun from our family get togethers. Rest In Peace Jerry.
