I have such fond memories of Jerry and I playing cards with Sonny and Joyce. He will be missed by all who knew him My condolences to the family.

Dec 6.17 from Carl and Barbara Sceusa:
Gerry will be truly missed. He and Carl rambled all over the place or just talked while Carl was doing something in the barn. It's not very often that one finds such a good friend.

My deepest sympathy. Brings back many good old memories. Mary Lou Carmody

Dec 4.17 from Floyd & Lois Fladie:
Sorry to hear of his passing. I knew him as Penny's Dad or Mr. Plowe I couldn't remember his first name - but friendly and a fellow shopper at Save A Lot - we would often be there at the same time. Prayers for the family.

Dec 4.17 from Bonnie Thiers:
I am heartbroken to have just read of my dear friend and neighbor's passing. We shared so many visits and fun conversations over the years. Lots of laughs and stories of years ago. A very short time ago he walked over to visit after getting his mail. He seemed so good and said he felt good. I am so sad!! My sympathy goes out to the family. I will miss him so much.
