    McIntosh MNPeggy, Sabrina, and family –

    So sorry to hear of Jerry’s passing. So many memories come to mind when I think of working with Jerry for 6 years. As the new kid on the job and just off the farm, Jerry provided much needed (and much appreciated) guidance to me. He was a kind and caring man. I am glad we were able to stay in touch after his retirement. My deepest sympathies and prayers go out to you.;

    Jerry was a wonderful neighbor. He welcomed us to Prairiewood soon after we moved in, and we bought one of our daughter’s first cars from him, a Plymouth Horizon. We’ve always appreciated having Jerry and Peggy as our neighbors, good people! Our condolences to Peggy and family.;

    Our heartfelt sympathies to your family on the loss of such a great guy. We are the neighbors across the street and will miss greatly what Jerry added to our neighborhood … he so loved working in the yard and stopping to chat with us and the rest of the neighborhood – he really kind of the anchor for our little neck of Prairiewood.;
