Jerry was always willing to give a helping hand. I wish I had met him earlier in my life. Jerry loved the U P, and we had some great times hunting and working on our deer stands. My condolences go out to the Roberts family. To say that he will be missed, is an understatement. Enjoy Heaven my good friend! Elmer Legrey
