Jerry enjoyed reading westerns and mystery novels, watching movies and feeding squirrels. He found solace walking the beach at Lakeview Park. His greatest joy came from the accomplishments of his grandsons, he did not miss a chance to see them participate in school and sporting events. He was so proud of the fine men they have become.
