I went to grade school and high school with Jerry. He was a great athlete, he was kind and an overall fun loving person. He will be missed deeply.
RIH Jerry.

Jerry was an honorable and protective friend. He was one of many “additional” children often found around the Waller home. Bless you and thank you for the many years, moments and love you shared with our family. Cindy (Waller) Akers.
