Our hearts are very sad to hear of Jerry's passing. I will always remember working with him for many years at the Balloon show, always willing to help do anything at anytime for anyone. Jerry, I will always remember your kind heart, your great smile and your big bear hugs. I know you are helping out our Father in heaven now and oh what a time you will have. I will miss you my Jerr Bear.
Prayers to the family, and to Barb...... God's Blessings on you my friend, he will hold you and give you the strength in the days ahead. ❤
Love, Jerry & Marsha PorterDmZ

Barb, So very sorry to read of Jerry's sudden passing. He was one of my favorite people to know and I will always have such fond memories of working with him during my many years at the balloons. I don't remember ever seeing him mad or in a fowl mood. What a great man he was. Our sincere sympathy to you and yours.

Jerry even though we hadn't seen each other for over thirty years when I found you on facebook you quickly accepted my friends request and when I called you we talked for over an hour as if we had never lost touch with each other. You were truly a great person willing to accept everyone and give them any help they needed. I remember you frequently coming over to our house and going to church with mom and I. You will be greatly missed by your family and friends.

So sorry to hear of Jerry's passing. He was a great man and will be hugely missed.

He was one of the kindest man I knew. Always the first to help anyone at anytime. He will be missed by all who knew and loved him. Him and I were the only ones that ate the cranberry sauce on Thanksgiving at Angie and Dans. It was always a joke between him and I. Watch over us and may you rest in peace sweet man!
