Jerry was preceded in death by his parents, Lula and Louis. He is survived by beloved wife Sheryll, and siblings, Linda (Dale) Mulkins, Bill Bodnar, Louis Jr, Annie Schneider, Kathy (Eric) Feight, and Helen (Eric) Turnquist.

He navigated ports throughout the world, steered his ship through a hurricane, and supported the Exxon Valdez oil spill clean-up in Alaska. Jerry and Sheryll doted on three rescue dogs Sadie, Chilly, and currently Lucas. Jerry will always be remembered for his defense of the weak, hard work, sage advice, sense of humor, heartfelt wit, and his generous heart. An active member of the community, he was a regular attendee at Amherst High School sporting events.
