Add My Condolences

Jerry was one of the most reliable members of our 84th and 62 Korean war reunion members and could always be counted on to be willing to assure that all of us were well supplied with snacks, beer and wine as well as a lasting friendship. He and Isabel are greatly missed!

I was an Army "Brother" in the Korean War, Also he and Isabel attende most of our annual Korean Reunions for the past 31 years. It was an honor and a pleasure to call him a friend. In recent years we often visited on the phone enjoying discussing our experiences.

Related by marriage to his neice, I always called him Uncle Jerry, same with Aunt Is from day one. I loved & respected them both very much. Uncle Jerry was fun to be around, always upbeat and funny. I am proud of his military service and he was someone I admired very much. May he rest in peace.

I am the niece of Uncle Jerry. Our families were together since I was a small child. I loved my Uncle Jerry and Aunt Is with all of my heart. I loved listening to them talk and loved just being around them. Uncle Jerry was a military hero and my father attended a few Korean War reunions with Uncle Jerry. I am so fortunate to be a part of this family. Love you Dave, Ka, and family.
