    Judy, and Jeanine, I am very sorry for your loss. Jerry was a very kind man and I enjoyed working with him, and Judy, on a daily basis for several years at Kent Village Apartments. I was a 19yr old kid just getting started and Jerry took me under his wing and with great patience, he showed me the ropes of building maintenance. It’s been over 20yrs since then, and I still use tips and tricks that Jerry taught me in my own home today. I look back on those times fondly. You are all in my thoughts during this difficult time.

    I am so sad to hear of Jerry’s passing. I have fond memories of spending time with Jerry, Ray, and Jimmy and Joyce and her brothers, my sisters and brothers, cousins Sharon and Barbara Jean at Grandma and Grandpa Worley house. We met often. We all went our separate ways, and and tried to keep teack over the years. Seeing Jerry’ picture here takes me back to that handsome boy I knew years ago. I have thought of Jerry and family often. May God help you find peace until you are together again.
