Jan and family - His life held many talents and lots of love for all things. The best of his love was for God, Jan, sons, daughters-in-law, grandkids, and all his family. His love was one of the most beautiful ever seen. To see his face smile and light up when he sees Jan...talks about his family...even when he talked about work. We are all blessed to have known him.

I have so many great memories of Jerry and Jan. Jerry worked with my late husband Glenn. We all became great friends and enjoyed coffee, laughter and music. He loved God, his family and music. He will be missed.

Jerry was one of the nicest men Ive ever known. He dearly loved Jan and called her Baby. He was so proud of his sons and adored his grandkids. He was an amazing guitarist and we were blessed to have him play for our church ensemble. This is such a tremendous loss. My prayers go out to Jan, Jeremy, Jordan, Johnathan, and their families.
