From the first moment we met Jerry, as Cynthia's beaux at the time, we loved him! His sense of humor was so like my husband, Olin's, and we enjoyed the times that we spent with him! My husband worked out of state quite a bit, so he and Jerry did not get to follow through with their plans of golfing together, playing a little black jack and more travel. We lost him too soon.
The fun we had though, traveling through Paris and northern France together was awesome!! The times together were so memorable.
He will forever be in our hearts
Jerry was a great guy, always willing to teach and mentor anyone who asked. My first experience was when I was a young rookie at a crime scene. Jerry took the time to teach me what to look for and why things happened the way it did. Many years later he was my Sargent in the West Patrol and he never stopped teaching me or those around him. Thanks and rest in peace.
There are a lot of words that describes Jerry. He was someone who commanded and demanded the best of me. He was the most fair person I know and the best police officer I have ever been around. His memory was unbelievable and insight into people and situations was incredible. He was my mentor and friend and I will never forget the times we spent together during and after his career. I was able to spend the best part of my career around him and owe him so much from the lessons he taught. They weren’t always easy lessons to learn, but his fairness in teaching them made me realize his greatness. My condolences go to Jerry’s family and all that love and will miss him.
