During his retirement, Jerry loved to fish the local watering holes in the area, as well as spending time supporting and watching NDSU Bison sports. He enjoyed spending time with his faithful companion Furman at his backyard pool oasis but most importantly enjoyed spending as much time as possible with his many friends, children and grandchildren.

Jerry is survived by his wife Debra of 47 years, 4 children and 6 grandchildren and his dog who was ever at his side.
