A special time to remember , we were thrilled Auntie Cathy was able to talk Gerry into driving to Georgia to see us ! Brian has always bragged about his Uncle Gerry, so he feels blessed to have spent the day of the course with him ! I think people are still talking about his skills.. A wonderful uncle , friend and an amazing golfer that will be so missed by so many.

Cathy and Kelly what a terrible loss I am so sorry. Jerry has left me with some of the best memories one could have, Our fishing trips to Down East Maine, softball, dirt bikes, golf he was the most competitive person I have ever met, and you just couldn't beat him at anything. Our Friday nights at the Old Colonial or the Villa Capri or Bourne Mill we sure had some fun and the games we played at Granite street. Our thoughts and prayers are with you. Kevin & Jodie

Cathy and Kelly, I am so sorry that Jerry’s time on Earth was cut short. He was like a brother to me for over 50 years. Softball and football for Rick’s Auto Body, golf, tennis, always another sport to play! One of Jerry’s slogans for his carpentry business was “pass the rest, get the best!”. Jerry was the best at whatever he set out to do, golf and other sports, carpentry, photography, training bird dogs, pool, and sales, to name a few. We spent a lot of time together over the years and he always made clear his love for Cathy and Kim and Kelly. He was so lucky to have you, Cathy, you were his rock. Jerry was very proud of you, Kelly and loved you and all the grandchildren, and I have many videos to prove it. Jerry loved his family and friends and hated mediocrity. I will miss him greatly.
