He was born to parents Ray and Ethel Winters on September 1, 1946 in Galion. Jerry graduated from Galion High School in 1964 and attended the Columbus Business College.

Jerry was known for his love of family, golf, backyard barbeques and silly sense of humor. Jerry had many dreams. One was that his daughters receive a four year college degree. With many sacrifices on both his and Pat’s part, this dream was accomplished. Another dream was to travel the world upon retirement. Sadly, this dream was stolen by the Alzheimer’s Disease. Another dream was that his family knew through word and deed, just how much he loved them. This dream was successfully achieved over and over again.
A memorial service will be held at 11 a.m. Saturday, May 11, 2019 at Richardson Davis Chapel of Snyder Funeral Homes, 218 South Market St., Galion, Ohio 44833 with Rev. Darrin Harvey and John Goodwin officiating. Interment will follow in Fairview Cemetery.
