I believe I was in a keypunch class with Jerry at Mercer County Vo Tech back in 1978. We also went on one date. I remember him as a very nice guy. RIP Gerry.

So hard to lose a brother. I have been praying that your family finds comfort.
I attended Penn State with Jerry, and we were in an accounting study group. He was a special friend and a great support to me for many years. We lost contact but I have very special memories of Jerry, a great person. Blessing and Prayers.
I am so sorry. I was planning on attending services this morning but tested positive for Covid.
I worked with Jerry at St. Paul’s years ago. We had some great times. I would see him every so often at Walmart or Sheetz he was always the same old Jerry. What a shock. Going to miss seeing you Jerry ❤️
