From: Roberta Dale Phelps
Relation: He was my eldest brother

He was a wonderful man, always smiling, cheerful, and worked hard for his family. He endured much loss in his life but also had so much love from his Family. My heart goes out to Pat and his children and grandchildren. He was an awesome big brother and I will miss him terribly but have wonderful memories of him taking me for a ride when I was just a girl in his logging truck! And many more wonderful memories of a wonderful man. My deepest condolences for his wife Pat, sending love, Dale

Thinking of you Pat and your family so sorry for your loss Jerry was a good man HUGS

From: Judy & Ron
Relation: Niece

Uncle Jerry was such a huge part of our lives growing up. He always had that twinkle in his eye and you never knew if he was being serious or stringing you along. Loved all of our weekend visits and dinners, all of our weekend huckleberry picking adventures, riding with you in your sunbug trucking logging truck or just hanging out at your house after volleyball practice until dad could pick me up. And in later years your awesome margaritas. You will be deeply missed. Deepest condolences to Aunty Pat, Rochelle, Rebecca, Joel and their families. Keeping you all in our prayers.

From: Beverley Louie
Relation: He was my brother

Our little world has lost a man who had humor, compassion, true family love and a generous nature. All my love and prayers for Pat, their children and grandchildren.

I am so sad about Jerry. He was such a good man. Having lost Mel 2 months ago I know how much friends and family can help you through this. Love to you and your family.

From: Pat and Bonnie Ross
Relation: Friend

Hi Pat, you may remember us, we lived in the Swan house for a few years a number of years ago. We were very sad to read about Jerrys passing, we liked Jerry a lot. He was a very nice person and very helpful to us for all things Slocan. We still remember meeting up with you in Arizona. We have settled and hunkered down in Balfour, no more travels. Sorry for your loss and please take care. Pat and Bonnie Ross
