Jerry worked for Travis County Sheriff Dept. in Austin where he had several posts in the jail. He got Officer of the Year when he was in the Transportation Dept. He wore the uniform with great pride. He loved his job more than most!
Jerry’s hobbies were riding motorcycles and camping. He loved animals and all his pets are rescue animals. Let’s just say he never saw a kitty he couldn’t love. Jerry had a passion for and really enjoyed working on cars. He was the best mechanic. He was a perfectionist, no short cuts.
Jerry was an incredibly loving man. Not big on words but huge on actions to express his love. He was a great Grandpa and Uncle. He was always ready to spend time with them. He took every opportunity to teach. He loved the Lord and prayed for everyone. He would tell you to put your fears in God’s hands and leave it there.
