Jerry was a member of St. Mary’s Catholic Church. He grew up enjoying 4H with his brothers and sisters and all the hard work that comes with caring for the animals. Jerry had a love for cars. He cherished his '66' Mustang convertible and would challenge anyone to a race. He also enjoyed "legally" racing his blue # 55 stock car and he attended the car races at the Brown County Speedway every Friday night.

He was a hardworking compassionate man who was always willing to help others. He loved having fun and spending time with family and friends. Jerry was a devoted family man who enjoyed spending time at Jason and Erin's farm and lake cabin, playing board games and taking walks through Storybook Land with his grandchildren.
