    We will all miss Jerry so much. He was a constant in my life for many years as a co-worker. He was a friend and funny guy with a silly comment for any situation. I still quote him often. A couple of my favorites “keep your hat on so I’ll know ya” and keep your tailgate up so your apples don’t roll out.” So many more that were Jerry’s and Jerry’s alone. He lived life to the fullest. My sincere sympathies to Cheryl, his kids, and the entire family. Love you Jerry.

    I am sorry for your loss. I worked at Federal Mogul and lifted a few beers years ago with Jerry. He was a lot of fun, a good worker. I pray God comfort all family and friends.
