Jerry worked as a packaging specialist at the Naval Support Activity Mechanicsburg for thirty-eight, retiring in 1984. In his free time, Jerry enjoyed being outdoors. He liked to spend time at his cabin in the Lower Horse Valley, hunting and fishing, or just simply walking through the woods. Jerry was interested in Native American archaeology and collected many Native American artifacts. He delighted in children and they loved him.
