Prayers from our family to yours at this time of loss. My Dad and myself always enjoyed stopping in for parts and a chance to talk to Jerry. It always seemed to brighten the day. He was a wonderful man.

Jerry helped us purchase the high-quality automotive paint for the Historical’s 440 steam engine. He was a great father to Brian and Shelley! He will be missed for his generous contributions to our community.

Dear family of Jerry
I was so sorry to hear of the passing of my special friend. I actually got to know Jerry first when I went with my dad for auto parts at the family Auto Parts shop. He used to tease me a lot just to see me blush I suspect. Always a classmate friend, Janet (Rosio) Schoblaska

Darlene,Brian and Shelly and family. Our thoughts and prayers are with you and your family. Les and I would always stop and see Jerry and Eli while in high school and college. The back and forth banter was always interesting and fun. Bill Orgeman

Jerry was the best boss to work for. I always came to work early and we caught up on all gossip he heard at the Dixie. A lot of time he would bring me breakfast, kolaches or a plate of smelt. He will be missed.

It has been some time since I had seen Jerry. It was always a treat to be able to stop in at the store and just BS with Jerry , even if not needing anything. He always treated me like I was almost a family member. He was a great man. RIP Jerry!
