From Devon kuzinski...

It’s gonna be hard not going out to eat lunch with him

From David Holroyd...

I ran into Jerry last fall at Walmart before November. He saw me and we talked and he had cut his arm on a rack. I went with him to customer service to get it bandaged. He was so kind and appreciative . His quiet demeanor was the same as when he was a Supervisor at Kmart, where I worked also. He never raised his voice at the workers. He was a quiet , soft spoken, and steadfast.
I am glad I got to see him when I did . We talked about our age and never did I think at the time he would pass away 3 months later. I have been told that men get their manners from their mother and Jerry must have had a very, very nice mother.

Condolences to the entire family.
