He was very handy and enjoyed painting and other maintenance projects, as well as, dancing to polkas and waltzes.   Jerry had a great sense of humor and was quite the jokester and “troublemaker.” He also loved to socialize and play cards with friends. Jerry was a member of the Farming Township Board, Sts. Peter and Paul Catholic Church, Catholic United Financial, Knights of Columbus and the Richmond American Legion.
