Jerry was a special guy who was humble and did not realize how cool he was

RIP Jerry.  I had just contacted him through this incredible website a few months back.  We were in different bands around the same time.  He was a great guitarist.  Really class guy.  I will really miss him.

Jerry and I spent a lot of time together on our bicycles running up and down Gardener Blvd. in the late fifties. He was part of a great family in a warm, inviting home. Always loved spending time with him and enjoying the memories!
