Jerry had a contagious smile, natural laugh, and a demeanor that would light up the room.  His biggest joy in life was spending time with his boys, Crystal, and close friends.  Jerry loved mechanics, carpentry, and multi-talented when it came to doing pretty much anything.  He also enjoyed fishing and rebuilding or just taking apart anything that had a motor.  Jerry was always there to help family and friends with whatever they needed him for.
