Jerry Sr. was a devoted and dedicated family man who did his very best to provide and bring happiness to all of his family. His steadfast LOVING support was an inspiration and a guiding light in the darkness of life for all to follow. A man of principles, Jerry Sr. towed the line when it came to ensuring money for a
