He was also an avid outdoors man who enjoyed fishing and hunting as well as traveling, especially family trips to the Smoky Mountains. Most importantly, Jerry was a devoted husband, father, grandfather and great grandfather who placed his faith in the Lord Jesus Christ. He will be sadly missed by all.
