As a young man, Jerry competitively raced motorcycles and had a passion for flying light planes and gliders. He served in the Army National Guard and later trained as a journeyman electrician. His work life led him from the Forest Service in Orange County, Florida to the ARAMCO oil refineries in Ras Tanura, Saudi Arabia. Jerry loved to travel and embraced the adventure that working overseas brought him. He deeply valued the friendships he built with co-workers from around the world. After retirement and the passing of his first wife, Jerry continued to live a full life. He found love twice more with loving partners who would share his journey until they passed. He was a steadfast partner to those he loved. He was a loving and supportive father who was never inconvenienced when it came to helping someone in need.
