Jerry was a loving husband, father, grandfather, and friend to everyone. Jerry worked as a Systems Engineer at The MITRE Corporation for 22 years until his retirement at age 67. He loved spending quality time with his grandchildren. From road trips to Disney… to tutoring in math… to playing baseball in the backyard… to visiting with his great grandchildren. He also enjoyed watching various shows on TV such as The Washington Nationals baseball games, old western movies and country music shows.
The family would like to extend their sincerest gratitude towards Barber Funeral Home in Laytonsville, Maryland for being very accommodating and understanding during this difficult time. Private funeral services for Jerry will be held on Saturday, November 28 at 11:00 a.m. at Christ Community Church, previously known as Ashton Baptist Church, where he was a devout member for many years. Jerry will be laid to rest alongside his beloved daughter, Dianna at the Norbeck Memorial Park in Olney, Maryland.
