    I heard of Jerry's passing while back. It didn't seem possible to me. I still remember Jerry being the first at ant bid event on the beach and loved his telling of it. He would have been a great author! Whenever home, I looked for him near where Sea Filly was docked. I think of Jerry Lewis and family often, God bless you. Jerry!

    I worked with Jerry at the Washington Fire Department. I was the Captain of A shift and Jerry was the Captain of B shift. He was a good friend and helped me a lot in the fire service. I am sorry for your loss and know that he will be missed.
