Jerry lived to travel with his love, Carol, either in a motor home, in a Jeep or in a razor on the Logandale Trails. He loved to eat and cook and was famous for his beans and chili verde.  He loved camping, fishing, Nascar, football and welding.  He had a zany, sarcastic sense of humor everyone loved.  He was active in the VFW, he was the Junior Vice Commander in 2019-2020.  He was with family when he passed away and will be remembered for the easy smile and unending willingness to help anyone who asked.
