Jerry moved back to Cornelius from New York City. After spending many years working with cars in the city, he pursued other opportunities; manufacturing, retail and finally the movie theater industry, of which he retired. While he enjoyed working at the theater, he continued to detail cars and was one of the absolute best at making them shine.
Jerry departed this life on May 4, 2023, moving from Labor to Reward. He will be missed because his life was a sermon that we could see without hearing.
