Jerry was a life long farmer in the Wallingford area. He was quick witted, a perfectionist with a huge heart that loved his farm, pontooning, daily bargain hunting trips to Fareway and HyVee, the goodie drawer, a clean shave and when kids and grandkids would come to visit.

Left to cherish Jerry's memory are his children: Lori McColl, Craig (Suizan) Schacherer, Michelle Krug, Dawn (Butch) Ross, Alyson (Naftali) Rutter, and 15 grandchildren; siblings: Darlene "Tootie" Lair, Marge Dalen, Thelma Jean "Obby" Brobst; loving companion Pam Peton and her children: Jason (Kelli) Peton, Kim (Allen) Drost, Leslie Hiney and six grandchildren.

Preceding Jerry in death are his parents, daughter Marcia; sister Marion, and triplet sisters Judy and Jane.
