Jerry taught me a lot about the world as a kid. He was and always will be my uncle. He taught me how to speak my mind, stand my ground, and no matter what the odds were to not back down. He taught me to be everything I was afraid of being and then some. He taught me alot, and i had now idea at the time. Wish i did, but I know i will miss him, and I know the lessons learned will not fall on deaf ears with the next generation.

My heartfelt condolences to Jerry's family and friends. I was only about 5 but I'll always remember when he took me, Daisy and my brother to McDonald's and bought us all bubbles. I hope his family and friends find comfort in great memories.

Myself and my wife Annette send our condolences to the Latimer family. Such a warm person with a smile always on his face. We were part of the St Francis family like Jerry. He was always friendly and will be missed. May God greet him with open arms.
