Sincere sympathy to the brown family. I knew Jerry from Class of 1962 Lincoln High School. Always a GREAT classmate& friend. Jerry will surely be missed.
Mike and I are so sorry for your loss, a loss for us as well, we have enjoyed working with Jerry as his pleasant disposition and wealth of knowledge in most subjects gave way to a entertaining time that made the job seem fun. We will miss Jerry, your family is in our prayers.
I will miss “Jer” but will always remember him! My deepest condolances.
I am so sorry for your loss. I would always say Hi to Jerry when I would get my mail or if we were both out cutting the grass or doing yard work. He was a quiet man and a good neighbor. We will miss seeing him. All of you are in our thoughts and our prayers.
Bob has known Jerry since he worked at Reeves Bank in Koppel. He has helped us through the years. We consider him a good friend and send our sympathy to the Brown family. Bobby will miss him in his business endeavors and everyone will miss Jerry’s smile.
Tim, I am sorry your family and Jerry’s has to endure this loss. I will always have fond memories of Joe’s and my good times with Jerry & Lorraine in our younger days. I never had the pleasure to meet Darla but please extend my best wishes. Hugs all around, Carol
Jerry was a generous and funny neighbor on pershing street and a pleasure to know through years of association through work and at golf. He was a gentleman and considerate to me and my family thru the years. We hope these words of comfort and the love of your family around each of you eases your grief at this time.
