    I’m so sorry for your loss, as Jerry was one of the finest men I had ever met, he was a gentlemen and acted as though he loved everyone. My thoughts and prayers are with the family today in their great loss of a wonderful man.

    In the 80’s Jerry was the only salesman at Boswell’s Harley Davidson. He sold me a 1988 HD Softail. Six months later I crashed and spent 2 months in intensive care. Jerry came to the hospital to see how I was, and brought a card. He also was able to relieve me of taking care of the insurance check, and got the motorcycle paid off and sold. That was a huge relief. I went back later, and over the years, to thank him for that. In 2004 I was fortunate to ride with him during Nashville’s Veterans Parade. Thanks Jerry, and for your service to our country. RIP
