I knew Jerry from first grade on. He always had a smile and a bit of ornery fun. Rest In Peace.

I worked with Jerry for a time at the Country Inn in Baxter, he told me I reminded him of a kid sister. I can't hear the song "Bad to the bone" without being reminded of his ringtone. I'm so sorry for your loss, my thoughts and prayers are with the family.
