WOW,, Holly crap, I think I just read the title to this thread 20 times hoping it was a miss print or a joke from SKramer..... What a sad thing to hear.. Now I know why Ronnie was calling me today.. Jerry as one cool Duuudeee... He will surely be missed! The last time I talked to him was when my Dad passed the phone to me when he was at the Cleveland Boat Show... Such Sad news... I will never forget the infamous thread he started, "Apache - Whats in the name!!"........... God Bless Brotha!!!

great pic dawn, those three guys were inseperable. Whenever I'd hit kellys island I always looked forward to running into them and it was a given that they'd be there.

Ohh my Jerry will be missed

The video that was posted was originaly put up by me from our run (Smoke On THe Water Poker Run) Somehow sonone pirated it and changed the music (Not sure how that happens) I am out of town and will look up some more footage of Jerry from our event when i get back home . I think i have some of him running his other 41 saber before he had Clifford built
Jerry was a class act and I was fortunate to have spent a bit of time with the guy both at our runs and through doing some business together He will be missed

Gods Speed Jerry

Marc
