Memories & Candles
so many good traits to remember Jerry by but the most is loyalty, loyalty to his career,his friends,co-workers,his union and of course his family and Becky.I always admired his friendship with Dickie Ribet who also has recently passed on. A light from our household is gone a voice we loved is still a place is vacant in our hearts that can never be filled. That was you Jerry! God bless you Becky.

I will always remember when I would call and when Jerry would answer
the phone, I would say "Hi, Jerry, how are ya?" and always his response was
"I'm doing fantastic now that I"m talking to you!" He always made me laugh, and Jim and I will always miss him.

Jerry never failed to assist when asked. I have certainly been enriched in my
work with him. I am a CO tech in North Wilkesboro and he will certainly be missed. My prayers and condolences go out to his family.

I worked in Hickory with Jerry, I can't tell you how many times he has come to the Hickory Central Office and rescued us from some major outages. Jerry was always willing to help and always wore his smile. I have met a lot of people in my life but never have met anyone as smart as Jerry. He was truly a master of his work. I held Jerry's hand the day before he passed and as I talked with

I worked with Jerry for a good many years and I was always pleased to see and talk to him. He was always "on top" of everything tha pertained to work. I don't think he ever met a stranger. A great person!
