    Jerre and I were in school together. We both studied at Tenn Tech. I am so sad to learn of his passing. We always enjoyed a good conversation when seeing one another. He will be missed by many friends.

      Dearest Betty and family, I am so very sorry to hear of Jerre’s passing. He and my dad shared such similar personalities and could keep everyone in stitches with stories from their youth.
      I will miss his warmth and care for his family and the world is a darker place without his wonderful smile!
      Sending you all love and prayers for comfort!
