    Jerry was a great man. He was humble and giving. He taught me everything I know about gun systems. I’m saddened to loose him from this earth. But, he is in the hands of our true Father! We shall meet again! Prayers to the family for this loss. WE LOVE YOU JERRY!!!

    Jerry was an amazing man and a great friend. He truly did dedicate his life to service, more than almost anyone I’ve ever known. His fingerprints are on projects that will help keep Americans safe for decades, and on the lives he touched for generations. It is a rare and amazing person who can have such an impact, even if you only knew him for a short time. Love and prayers to Jerry’s family, who he loved and spoke of often. Godspeed Brother, til Valhalla.
