Jerry was the first boss I ever had and the most memorable of them all. He taught me several things in life and as a rule always had a ear handy to listen to what you had to say before offering some advice. A person always knew where they stood with Jerry as his answers might not always be what you wanted to hear but as a rule was the real truth of the matter at hand. Jerry in all honesty was one of the hardest working people I have ever known, but also a man who found great pleasure in the simple things of life. Many a story I could tell and many I remember very fondly.
