    My sympathy to the family and a farewell to Jerry. I worked with Jerry at Burroughs in Minneapolis in the late 1960’s early 1970’s. Many good times and memories.

    Wilmington North CarolinaJerry was my cousin and I had the good fortune to know him and spend time with him both as a young man and later in life. As a young man, he was a good ball player, playing catcher for his team in Fargo. I also fished with him in Minnesota
    and Alaska and hunted with him in North Dakota
    . A great guy and sportsman and he was always fun to be with. He loved the competition of a good card game and excelled at bridge. I have a copy of his primer on bridge that I will cherish.
    He will be missed a great deal by the entire Keller Family and I know he will be sorely missed by his sisters and his children. My thoughts and prayers are with you all.
