He was a professional truck driver most of his life and later became the best darn walking Flea Market around! If there was something you were in search of, you could almost always find it at “Jerry Mart”! Jerry’s family and many friends will remember him for his Happy Go Lucky Personality and for the fact that he’d NEVER met a stranger.

He was such a free spirited man with a huge heart and was loved by so many.
