Rest in peace Brother Jerry. Jerry was a good true friend, working Brother Pipefitter and a all around liked person. We worked together from 1971 up to 2002 which was the last job together. I also worked with his Brother Dale. I haven't been in touch thru the years. Thinking back we were in the 2nd grade Communion class at ST Gerard Elementary School. Lots of time has past. Made me sad to hear of his passing. My Heart and Prayers go out for the family. We had a lot of good memories. Tommy and Glenda Peavy
