He also has a host of niece’s, nephew’s, stepchildren, friends and 2 special families the Dixon’s and the Brunner’s. Jerry loved his family unconditionally with his whole heart.

Jerry was always the life of the party for every occasion. He loved music, singing, and dancing. He made money at the age of 4 and 5 years old by dancing for people. He enjoyed music so much that we had a hard time picking out his favorite song which was called no more rain by Angie Stone. He loved sports especially the Dallas Cowboys, and The Ohio State Buckeyes.

He was a big jokester because he kept everyone laughing. He loved to eat, and he was the Grill Master at the family picnics and reunions.
