Another good man taken too soon. I remember Jerry from High School days and his shop on Davis Island. My prayers are offered for his family and friends.
Judy, our condolences to you, Helen and family members and our thoughts and prayers are with you as you move forward with Jerry’s passing.

Another of my classmates has passed. The second in the last week. I remember Jerry. I remember that he was a good guy. I didn’t know until now, though, that we share the same birth date, August 8, 1947. My condolences to Jerry’s wife and family. Jon Bullard, Robinson High School class of 1965.
I worked with Jerry at the Shackelford Farrior law firm in the 1970’s. My husband Tom and I were good friends with him & Judy for several years and used to go places together as a young family. Jerry was a fun & crazy guy. We used to laugh a lot together. We lost touch over the years but have thought of him am and Judy many times over the years. Our thoughts and prayers are with Judy and all of the family. May he Rest In Peace.
