Jerry, Dan Davidson and I hunted together since the late 70’s. He was a good friend and was very proud of his family and talked about you all on the rides to and from PA. I will miss Jim greatly.

So sorry for your loss. Jerry was like a grandfather to our son Rob, as he and Rhett were so close and spent so much time with Jerry. He was such a great man and always stopped and spoke to me when I was outside getting the mail or mowing. He had such a great sense of humor and I will miss him greatly. My prayers are with your family and we are sad that we are in Florida and will miss his funeral. Mark
