Jerry had a passion for, among other things, travel, culture, cigars and Jack Daniels. He and Velma traveled the world, including trips to Israel, China, Europe and Central America and cruises spanning the globe. He loved opera, movies, great restaurants, football & fixing things. Most of all, he loved his family and shared everything he had with them. He was greatly admired by his family and by those who had the privilege of working with and knowing him.
