Jerry was proud to have achieved Eagle Scout and Order of the Arrow in the Boy Scouts. He attended Hirschi High in Wichita Falls, Tx. graduating in 1975. In support of his lifelong love of cars he attended Arizona Automotive Institute and spent most of his career in the automotive industry. He married in 1975 and had two children. They spent many years in New Braunfels, Tx. and moved to Noble in the late 90's so he could help care for his grandparents and maintain the family farm. He enjoyed fishing, hunting, boating, golfing and playing his guitars. He always had a beer in his hand and a joke to tell. His favorite quote was ' I swear Woodrow, Heaven is better than Montana. Shake a leg and get on up here.'

Je t'embrasse cousin Jerry. Je n'oublierai jamais ton humour et ton hospitalité. Merci encore.
I'm sure you'll still admire my father's plants of tomatoes every year.
Au revoir.

Jerry always seemed to have a smile for everyone and was never at a loss to supply a joke. He was polite and always willing to help if it was needed. Jerry was special and will be well remembered by all that knew him!
