So sorry to hear of Jerrys' death. He was a close childhood friend. Both of my parents worked for his dad part time at the Olde Lodge and later out on highway 141 at "Johnnies'". We went in different directions after high school me the Navy and He the Marines. I can count on one hand the number of times I saw and spoke with him after I retired from the Navy, but I still have many fond memories of him. R.I.P. Jerry. Robert Schmidt
