Jerry is remembered for his dedication to his country, having served 4 years in the US Navy, and then 33 years with the Federal Aviation Administration. This was how Jerry lived his life, dedicated to his community, his wife, and his family. He was very active in the town of Speedway, Indiana, where he spent much of his life, He was president of the Speedway Lions Club and Cub Scout troop master of Pack 504. He was always there for every family activity, especially his children’s theater and band performances and sports events.
