    Patricia and family,

    Our deepest sympathy for your loss. I worked with Jerry many years ago and have many fond memories. May your memories comfort you during this difficult time – sending prayers your way.

    I enjoyed many of Strohs and many laughs with my yooper Uncle Drywall. He wasn’t a blood uncle, but he might as well have been. He was a perfect fit for the Norder tent camp in the Hiawatha Forest. He was a part of our camp and tradition. You will be missed. Signed, One of the last of the tent camps.

    Pat, Paula and the rest of your family, I am so very sorry to hear about Jerry “Chief” (as I called him), passing. I have so many wonderful memories of him, as I know you all do. My heart goes out to all of you. I often recall many of the funny jokes he used to tell me and how we got along. I was always made to feel like I was a part of your family, which no one else has made me feel. I pray that you will find peace and comfort in all of your memories. He was a really awesome person and nobody could ever tell me anything different. I know how much he loved all of you, but, those granddaughters were the light of his life. May he rest in peace. My heart aches for all of you…I love you all.

    Pat and Paula and family Mark and I are so sorry to hear of Gerry’s passing . We are sending many blessings and prayers to you all at this time.

    Gerry had a gentle way of teaching all trades how to build a house with the drywaller in mind! We always enjoyed working with him and sharing some laughs at the end of the day. Condolences to Pat and the rest of his family.

    Pat I am so sorry for your loss. I am happy that I was able to see Jerry and you last summer. I will be praying for you and your family (dogs too).
