He loved his entire family and the time he spent with them.

Deepest sympathy in Jerry's passing. He was a classmate of mine. We graduated together, and I continue to go the Chippewa Church of the Brethren in Creston, where Jerry 's family went ( and some still do ). I lost my husband 11 months ago, so I can understand the pain you are going through. My prayer for Chris and the family as well, is that the Lord will be with you as He continues to be with me. I need to remind myself often that the Lord is near..... He continues to carry me through each day as He will you as well. Prayers for you all. Colleen Ritzi

My deepest sympathies to all. Jerry had a smile and a twinkle in his eyes that would light up the room and a laugh that would make you want to laugh along with him. May Jeremiah 29:11 provide strength and peace. The best is yet to be!

David Butler on Oct 21, 2020

Jerry was a great brother-in-law-in law. We were always after each other who would take care of our mother -in -law. Rest in peace my friend!
