Jerry said he, "fought a hard battle with COPD lung disease and an even harder battle against Glioblastoma brain cancer." He enjoyed and left memories in his children's hearts of the summer trips they took together in the Florida Keys and fishing trips with his son. Jerry loved spending time with his family, but on a lighter note, he also enjoyed gambling, especially his "scratchers," his daily trip to the local pub to see friends but mostly "yelling at his son, Jerry."
