Growing up Jerry was our family mechanic. I use to brag that my mechanic could call the death of a car within a matter of miles. He even accompanied me when purchasing my first car. I will always remember how much joy he took in showing the guys at the dealership what the cars were REALLY worth and why. I honestly believe his input and assistance kept me safe - each of our cars made it well over 220K. Our family lost touch but many of his lessons I still use to this day. Prayers to his family.
