Our family's thoughts and prayers are with the entire family. We were members of the Owl Creek Gun Club with Jerry and I have to say, he was probably the most loving and caring soul I've had the pleasure to be around. He always had a smile and a laugh at the ready and was always willing to assist the kids when they needed additional help or coaching with their skills. Jerry will be missed dearly.

Although I never got to meet Jerry, just knowing how happy he made you is a testament to his character. He apparently was a family man and was loved by all who got to know him, I'm sorry I didn't get that chance.
