Wow! What a good person and will be missed. Met Jerry yrs ago when i would go down to FL. to fish for the specs with my father in Law Mark Hoffard. Jerry and I would sit around and talk about duck hunting and the best way to cook them. Jerry would keep us up with location to find the Specs and what kind of lure.

So sorry for your loss

In 2002 we spent the first winter of our retirement as snowbirds at Griffwood Park in Florida, where we met Jerry; he had lost Dee the year before. Since we lived only about 30 miles from him in Illinois, we became friends. We've had some good times together: cooking mushrooms, picking berries, gathering nuts, driving golf balls from the yard to the barn across the pond, going to flea markets, eating out, fishing in Florida and Illinois and deep sea fishing in Alaska, having fish fries, shooting at targets, woodworking, and tellin' tales. Fritzi used to drag Jerry to a stop at our place to pick up a treat on their way to the Marina at Griffwood. Jerry has a place in our hearts and we'll miss him.

Our first memory of was of Jerry and Dee joining our couples Sunday School class and all of the fun that we shared at the socials with them. It has surely been a pleasure down through many years to see Jerry and pass the time of day with him. His demeanor was always friendly and steadfast. He has left a wonderful legacy for all of his friends and family. God bless you Jerry and may you rest in God's peace.

Kelly and family, I had recently gotten to know your Dad. I found him to be a kind and gentle person. I enjoyed the few conversations that we had together. Some often wonder how they may be remembered.. Your Dad won't be remembered for the clothes he wore or the car he drove. He will be remembered for the fine person that he was and will continue to be in everyone's memory. I felt honored to have known him. Prayers to all of you.
