Jerry was a loving husband, father, grandfather and friend to many. He was proud to be a Veteran and attended the Veteran’s Day Celebration at the school with his grandchildren. He also attended any activity that his grandchildren participated in showing his unconditional love for his family.

He loved attending tractor pulls and drag races and he enjoyed the company of his dogs especially his weenie dog Lucy. Jerry was a Christian man and a member of First Baptist Church of Bonham.
