For 20 years we have been lucky to call Jerry our neighbor and friend. A source of support and good spirits as we raised our sons, he enriched our lives and lent a sympathetic ear. He was our son Gavin’s Godfather, and watched both Kurt and Gavin grow up. All our sympathies with his family and especially with Marge, his wife, partner and friend through thick and thin. May God bless you all. Love from Todd, Sonja, Kurt and Gavin

Where to begin...I have countless fond memories of our friendship! I remember so clearly when we first met outside of Weber when you brought Bailey over to meet me. Your house, and primarily the kitchen, became my second home! Chatting over coffee, lunch, or a delicious dinner prepared by Marge, we always had a good laugh or interesting conversation about something you read in the paper or saw on TV. Rest In Peace, my friend, from your loving “Dear Girl!”
Peace of mind is a call away. We’re here when you need us most.

Jerry your macabre sense of humor and infectious laugh will be missed by all. You truly were one of the good guys.

What a wonderfully joyful tribute to my Uncle Jerry, who perfectly fits the "one in a million" description ascribed to him in this memorial. I will remember him fondly as a terrific storyteller and as a human being whose larger-than-life laugh was surpassed in size only by his heart of gold. RIP, Uncle Jerry, and peace and comfort to family and friends mourning his passing.
