Uncle Jerry will be missed by so many. He was the type of man that would give you his last dollar! I have such great memories of all of us down in Sharpsburg on Memorial days when Jamie, Butch, Christopher and I were just kids. The parade was such a fun time for our family to come together and just enjoy each others company. I have so many great memories of you, Uncle Jerry. You will forever be in my heart and each time I think of you I will smile!

I just found out about Jerry's passing. He was such a wonderful guy. All the good times I had always involved Capt. Benders & Jerry. Then laughing so hard my ribs would hurt for a day. He always told me the truth no matter how bad it was then would laugh at me ! lol Then I would see him out with his grandsons and see a complete different side. He was a very kind and sweet person and will be missed.
