We have so many wonderful memories of our two families together over the last 50 years. Our time together in Cape Cod, in Maine, Florida and Rhode Island will be remembered with love in our hearts and always with a smile. Jerry's love of his family and ours and his love of life was most evident. He fought long and hard.
Jerry, never doubt that you surely laughed enough, loved enough and made a difference in the lives of others. Rest in peace dear friend, we love you.

Dear Nancy and family. To the guy who held my hand and brought me home from the fields as a child. Who's generosity seemed to have no end. Who was more than a brother in law. More than a Uncle but also our friend. We will miss Jerry and think of him often , and also probably laugh often as it seems that's all we did. Rest in peace your time here will not be forgotten.

Dick & Penny Jaskoviak - 06/08/2016

Dear Nancy and Family
We send our deepest sympathy and heartfelt
sadness on the loss of Jerry. We have not been friends for many years, but the love of
yours and Jerry's friendship has given us so
very much happiness.
Rest in peace dear friend.

Nancy and Family, We had many wonderful times in getting to know your family for so many years. Jerry shared his humor and hosting abilities with us for which we are grateful. We extend our love to all of you. Maybe he will enjoy UC better up above. Prayers for all.
