Jerry gave to many charities and helped out family and friends without ever mentioning it to anyone except Marty. He gave quietly, generously and often. If he loaned someone money, he often did not keep track of someone’s debt or just told them at Christmas that the debt was “paid”.
Jerry loved the Buffalo Bills win or lose. In 1960 He attended the first ever Bills game at War Memorial Stadium (The Rockpile) in Buffalo. He was an avid and knowledgeable sports fan. He also enjoyed being with family and friends, traveling, entertaining, working outside, going out to eat, theatre, keeping up with the news and just living life and enjoying. (and his Budweiser). Jerry grew up on a dairy farm and loved animals his entire life. He will be missed and loved always.
