  • Jerry will be greatly missed by all who knew him. Jerry’s presence lives on through the example he set. Many of us will have Jerry with us as we encounter situations where we will ask ourselves what Jerry’s view might be on a given topic? We all are the better for having known Jerry.

    We share the loss of Jerry with Donna and family.

  • Dear Donna and Family, I am very saddened by the loss of Jerry. We always worked together on our many, many GHS Class of 1944 Reunions. Always so much fun. Jerry was a very special person and he always lifted my spirits. He was constantly helping everybody in any way he could. He will be greatly missed by me and hundreds of others.–
    Love and smpathy to Donna and Family,
    Ruth Ritchey – and family

  • To the James Family,
    Jerry was one of a kind. I remember him driving us to the Galion games prior to the cheerleaders being allowed on the busses. Please accept our sympathies and prayers for the passing of Jerry.

  • Mrs. James, Dick and family,
    Please accept my sincere condolences on the death of Mr. James; he was a good, warm-hearted man. High School memories include his gracious volunteering to drive a van full of yelling cheerleaders to all of Galion’s away football games. While he went to watch Dick play, I think he enjoyed the trips as much as we did.
