Jerry worked as a machinist in the steel mills all of his life, and his skills as a handyman were highly revered both in the shop and at home. He loved working outside on his vegetable garden and enjoyed camping. More than anything else, he lived to be the best husband, father, grandfather and great grandfather he could be and loved his family to no end.
