Jerry was the founder of Carpentry Designs. Jerry will forever be remembered for his love for everyone he came in contact with. He loved his family with all his heart. Jerry’s zest for life, his creativity, lending a helping hand and fixing anything and everything he could, will be missed by all who knew him. Jerry loved his trips to Minnesota, and spending time with family and incredible friends, just relaxing and drinking coffee with friends and chatting, relaxing in the garage with all who stopped over to relax, and summer weekend nights playing sandbags. His laughter was contagious, and his positive outlook on life was infectious. Jerry’s down time consisted of building, reconstructing and fixing anything he could get his hands on.
