To think that 78 years ago I suggested Jerry's middle name which is now the "S." listed in his name. Years later when he was attending Miami University, he was one happy guy telling me of dating the love of his life who later became his wife. Susan

After reading the sad news of Jerry's passing this week, my first memory was when Jerry came down to his alma mater, Miami University when I was a student. He took me and my then girl friend and now wife of 40 years, Lisa, to dinner at the fanciest restaurant, The Park Place. I remember getting all dressed up and remember the feeling of a grown-up dinner. The discussion and laughter of a grown-up engagement. Not as Jerry's little cousin, but as a real contemporary. I will miss Jerry's warm smile and wicked sense of humor.
