Jerry married Kenan Sue Cook on August 12, 1995, in Kewanna and shared 28 years together. He started the Kewanna Youth Baseball League program in Kewanna in 1964 and continued it for many years. He was very proud of his accomplishments of providing an awesome program for the boys and girls of Kewanna. He was most proud of the 4th of July Tournaments that were held all week that many area teams participated in and concluded with the championship game on the 3rd preceding with fireworks. Many of his former players still refer to him as “Coach”.  He owned the Village Market grocery store from 1972-2009 where he never met a stranger. He loved the conversations with the customers and the salesmen and all the “sports” debates.

He was an avid Notre Dame and Western Kentucky fan. He made many friends after moving to Kentucky who became like family. They never missed a day going to breakfast together and they enjoyed golfing. He also volunteered at Potters Children’s Home which takes donations of items to financially help children and families in need.
