Jerry was a true outdoorsman who loved to hunt and fish. He also worked in the woods as a faller and bucker and, in later years, operated heavy logging equipment. He was skilled at his work and was very talented in other areas, as well. He was a self-taught mechanic and woodworker. He also enjoyed motorcycle and dirt bike riding when he was younger and later enjoyed riding his 4-wheeler in the woods. Jerry was a hard-working, honest man, who would do anything for his family and friends. He was ornery at times, but his family knew his bark was worse than his bite. He will be missed by all who knew and loved him.

A viewing will be held at 9:30 a.m. June 24 at St. Rose De Viterbo Catholic Church, followed by a rosary at 10:30 and the funeral service at 11 a.m., with internment at Longview Memorial Park.
