To the entire family...where to start. Jerry did not know a stranger. He was fun loving and everyone loved him. When I started thinking of all the outings, Jerry being in the baby pool playing with Hannah at Mountaineer Park came to mind. Jerry will surely be missed but not forgotten. Thoughts and prayers. Love to you all.

Georgianne... I am so sorry to hear of Jerry's passing. My thoughts and prayers are with you and your families. He will definitely be missed.

As someone who grew up and lived a few blocks away, I am saddened to hear of Jerry's passing. We had some great times together playing sports in front of the rock house on 3L highway, and swimming in the two pools on his street. Jerry’s parents were as nice and generous as you could find, and treated all the kids in the neighborhood as if we were members of the family. I will miss seeing Jerry enter a room because you always knew he had a story to tell. My condolences to Georgianne and family. As Jerry would say, I’ll have a bourbon and coke, light on the coke !

We will miss Jerry, and we are sorry for your loss. He was always in the middle of the fun when we would have our cousins get together,(back when all our Moms were still here). His smile could light up the day, and his laughter seldom stopped. I'm sorry we lost track of each other over the years. Our prayers are with you all.

throughout the course of his journey.Jerry truly exemplified the power of positive thinking. He made everyone feel welcomed and appreciated.He lived life to the fullest and brought tremendous amounts of joy and happiness to others throughout the course of his journey. Like Will Rogers, he never met a person he didn't like.I will surely miss his great enthusiasm and ready wit.

Jerry was one of a kind. Always smiling and wearing his UK swag. I will miss you.

Just like his Mom and Dad, Jerry was always a good time. No one could resist any one of them! Come to think of it, including his Granddad, Bill Robinette, my Grandma's brother. I'd say rest in peace, but that just wouldn't be Jerry. So I'll just say, "keep it down up there" for Russ and I, and know how much fun we are missing about now, Dugan, Tom,and Jerry!

This is my brother, a brother like no other. He always looked at life as it for sure filled his heart with love. He always had big shoulders, larger than most others as he had seen the godness in others. He was a proud father, humorus friend and in his heart he was more than a friend. If I lived my life over I would want no other than my best friend to share my sorrows. He has left a void in my heart, my soul that will never be told. Forever and beyond Jude.

So sorry to hear about Jerry. He was great guy. Always a fun guy to be around. Lots of fond memories from Thursday nights at Lookout Bowl.

I was so sad to see this today. Jerry was one of a kind. I loved when would play golf. He might have had an eraser on his pencil. Hit them straight in Heaven. You made us laugh always left with smile. Rest in Peace my friend.

The world is never going to be the same without Jerry. Every step he took, he made people around him laugh, feel happier and forget their troubles. He was funny, crazy, a great friend and an amazing neighbor!! Our neighborhood was a great place to raise a family, surrounded by people (like Jerry) who watched out for every child and every friend who needed help! I hope his reunion with Tom and Gloria was as sweet as I imagined! Fly with the Angels Jerry....as long as they're UK fans!!! We all loved you!!
