    Jerry Jr was a very brave man with a love for his brother, father, and late mother that I believe kept him pushing on through his many medical issues for most of his life. He told me that a government worker asked him why he kept going and he was appalled at the question which shows his focus was on staying healthy. I believe the example his father set in dealing with his own health problems made him stronger also. Kathy and my prayers are with Jerry Sr. In this trying time. God bless you Jerry Jr. And Sr. Jeff Singleton

    JJ as the family called him, was a true tender and loving individual. His heart was nothing but love. Yes, he struggled through many medical issues and fought to stay healthy and strong. His family was his greatest gift, and he knew it! You will be deeply missed and cherished. Prayers to my brother in this time of grieving. May God you comfort and joy.

    As neighbors with the Brandel family in Spanish Lake, we have very fond memories of Jerry Jr. when he was a teenager. Jerry liked hanging out with the guys at football practice so Ken signed him on as a ball boy for the 2 hand touch football team. Jerry had a great sense of humor and was a hit with the team!
    We will keep Jerry Sr. in our prayers for peace and comfort.
