Our family has many wonderful memories of Jerry. He touched the lives of so many young boys in a positive way when he coached baseball teams. I know our son, Tim, truly benefited from Jerry’s coaching. May the Lord show you His strength and comfort through the love and support of friends as you go through this tough time of losing a loved one. Kathy Sutphin

I am so very sorry for your loss. I knew Jerry from delivering to Powell’s Carquest in Lonaconing. Jerry was always smiling and laughing when he arrived at the store and I enjoyed talking with him. It was an honor to have meet and known such a great man. Prayers go out to the entire family. Rest In Peace Jerry
