Jerry married Donna Camp on November 3, 1978 in Bismarck.
Among several other hobbies, Jerry enjoyed motorcycle trips with his wife and close friends, snowmobiling ventures in the mountains, and spending many weekends in Deadwood, SD. Jerry had a special love and place in his heart for family – always helping with whatever was needed. He also had many special friends throughout his lifetime that he loved spending time with. Many laughs and sometimes drinks were had! Jerry had a heart of gold, and his presence was enjoyed by everyone. He never failed to make others laugh and always had a smile on his face. He truly lived life to the fullest and will be missed by many.
