Jerry was born in Vancouver, BC and spent his early years in Nanaimo on Vancouver Island. He joined the Royal Canadian Air Force in 1953 and served until 1968. During the time he was stationed in Germany, he had the opportunity to travel and see many countries in Europe. Following his discharge he received a degree from Vancouver City College and spent many years in the Manufacturing Procurement and contract field with Freightliner, Formost, AEG and Seimens.
Jerry loved golf, played whenever he could and was ecstatic when he finally shot a hole-in-one in 2001. Thanks to special golfing “buddy” Gary England.
