Jerry joined the US Air Force at age 17 straight out of high school and served 2 years. After being employed for several years at General Motors, he then realized his love for American-made cars. He became a self-taught expert mechanic, and he could transform any car into a work of art through his bodywork. He was a perfectionist with everything he did. Jerry never called a “repairman” because he was a fixer of all things. He loved his country and rock n’ roll music and had dance moves like no other! He loved to make people laugh and had a multitude of one-liners and jokes to share. Later in life, Jerry found God and attended Church regularly alongside his wife, Lois. He was one of a kind. Jerry will be missed by his many friends and family.
A celebration of life will be held on Sunday, October 3, 2021, 4 pm-7 pm at Shawnee Mission Park, 7900 Renner Rd. Shawnee, KS 66219, Shelter #4
