To Jerry, the most important blessing in his life was his Family. Even though he was a hard and highly respected worker, he always found time to enjoy family events or spending quality time with the love of his life, his wife, Shirley, as well as his children, grandchildren, and great-grandchildren. He was affectionately known as “J-Man” by many in his family.
