    My prayers and thoughts are with Jerry’s family & friends. I grew up with Jim & Jerry. Our families knew each other. Their father and the boys would pick me up on Saturday mornings to go “work” at their old facility in Old Brooklyn.
    I’m proud to have been the 1st baseman on our Parma City Champion
    baseball teams. We played at State Road Park.
    Good memories. Rest in Peace my dear friend.

    I met Jerry and Jim as a young man in 1983 for a “two month” software programming contract that ended up lasting a lifetime. The two of them were like that… taking a genuine interest in people, helping when it was needed and not expecting anything in return. When I built my house, Jerry literally stood be my side and helped me at every step. He also taught me the big lessons about being a stand up person and doing the right thing in life, for which I am forever grateful. After Jim passed, Jerry had many personal and professional challenges, but I always admired how he plotted a course, weathered the storms and stuck by his principles. I will so much miss his usual greeting of, “What’s happening, Mr. Keefe”. Rest In Peace old friend, and thank you for everything.

    I am so very sorry for your loss. Even though I had only recently had the pleasure of meeting Jerry, he was very kind, gracious and funny. Stay strong.

Please share your thoughts ...
