Jerry was a hard-working family man. He loved his family, extended family and friends. He enjoyed nature; long walks in the woods with the ones he loved, sitting at a campfire, hunting and fishing. He was proud that he taught each of his kids how to fish. He loved having fun. He was known for his sense of humor. He loved food and a good margarita. He loved to bbq and have others enjoy what he grilled. He also enjoyed making catfish for the family, it was the best. He was a competitive sportsman; annual fishing tournament, multiple pool leagues, horseshoes, bowling and more. He was great to play board games with. He loved to win. He was very giving.
