Jerry enjoyed life and rarely sat still, unless he was working on his tan or watching an old war movie. He told the best stories and jokes, loved to be outside in the sun doing yard work and coaching the youth soccer team. He did some refereeing for soccer games, youth football games, and the adult lacrosse games. He also taught classes at the State prison in Lowell, Florida. Jerry will be greatly missed, but will always be in the hearts of those who knew and loved him. There will be a memorial service at a later date.
