My Darling, Jerry, I miss you so much. I have loved you so deeply since the day I met you at New Trier High School when I was 14 years old. I came home that day and told my mom, ” I met the guy I am going to marry today.” Her reply was ” Oh Sandra, you cant possibly know that”. I said “oh yes I do and you will love him, he is Tall and he’s Irish” Well guess what, honey, 67 years later, I still feel the same. You are still my tall, dark and handsome dreamboat! Even though as you always say at least you are still tall and handsome! We are so blessed to have the family we have and the marriage we have had. We have always been proud of our girls, but you would be even more so when you see how they are helping with the arrangements. The husbands they chose have always been very near and dear to us and have been so supportive. They have admired you so for years and now have some pretty big shoes to fill. We will all make sure that our grandchildren and great children never ever forget you and how much you loved them too. You got your wish. You went first and now it is up to me to be the strong one. I will carry through with our plans to move from this house we loved and shared to a condo here in the Pointe, but maybe a little ahead of schedule, due to the fact it will be only me until I am able to join you in eternity. I love you, Jerry, always and forever.

Hi Dad, Dave and I miss you so much! We (Sue, Matthew, Dave and I) took Mom out to Ruby Tuesday’s to celebrate your 62nd anniversary and our 39th anniversary. We sat at the same round booth we sat at when we were there two years ago. DID YOU HAVE SOMETHING TO DO WITH THAT DAD? We were telling our favorite stories about growing up and how You and Mom handled situations. I believe my favorite one was when you SHOWED me the real meaning of the word ASSUME. Do you remember that Dad? I had to stay after school (Jr. High) for detention and when you came to pick me up, you went to the blackboard and wrote the word ASSUME and then proceeded to explain the true meaning of the word ASSUME (very eloquently I might add). You wrote the word ASSUME on the chalkboard then circled the three little words that make up that big word. This is what you did (very dramatically). He wrote the word ASSUME and said “When you ASSUME, you make an ASS out of U and ME! To this day Dad, I still think of that when someone uses that word. I Love you Daddy!
Peace of mind is a call away. We’re here when you need us most.

Hi Dad, Dave and I really miss you. When we (Mom, Matthew & Sue and Dave and I) went to Ruby Tuesday’s to celebrate your 62nd anniversary and our 39th anniversary. I think it was kismet Dad because we actually sat at the same big round booth that You, Mom, Dave and I sat at 2 years before. DID YOU DO THAT DAD? Anyway, we were telling stories and talking about our favorites and I have to say I think the one that I tell most often is the one where you explained what the word ASSUME actually meant! Remember? I was in detention in Jr. High and you came to pick me up and preceded to throw a little wisdom my way that I have never forgotten. You took the chalk from the chalkboard and wrote the word ASSUME and then circled the 3 words to live by: When you assume you make an ASS out of U and ME! Thanks Dad, we love you and you will always be close to our hearts.

Well Dad, There is nothing I can say that everyone who ever met you doesn’t know, you are a wonderful man. Someone once asked me to use one word to describe my father and that word is kind. I wish so much that I could have seen you and hugged you one last time. I was so happy to see your face in the moon the other night shining down on me. When you meet up with Christopher please give him a great big hug and a kiss from me. We will all be together again someday. Love, Sue

Dear Pam, What a beautiful tribute to your Dad and your family. He was my favorite Wynn cousin. My sister Emily and I used to babysit with Sue and Debby and when Jerry came home they would run to him and he would lift them up on his shoulders. Great memories. We were so jealous, we wanted to be Jerry’s kids. Deepest sympathy and love to all his wonderful family.

My Wonderful Dad, such a kind and gentle soul. He never had a bad word for anyone and a genuine smile for everyone. He was an awesome father, husband and friend. I will miss your smile, your bear hugs, your humor and most of all your love. I love you so much Dad. RIP Patty

In life, we were gifted with a loving, compassionate father with a gentle spirit who stood heads above us all, a man nicknamed the “Gentle Giant” that embodied kindness and generosity experienced by so many people who were privileged to have known him. Dad taught us to step with integrity into the fullness of who we are. He touched the spirit of everyone that he came in contact with melting their hearts with his dynamite smile. From diapers to britches to bitches to women, he was a magnificent role model exemplifying, strength, love and tenderness in all ways. Dad taught us the virtues in life that we know all too well through our own struggles, through which we have come to know the strength that is within. Below are just a few fond memories through the years: •Through tricycles, bicycles, go-kart wheels and automobiles •Through kindergarten and graduation •Through swimsuits in the backyard, gym suits and leotards •Through crowded bathrooms and spider alarms •Through fish, birds, dogs’ paws and cats’ claws •Through tornadoes, flooded basements, bicycle cries and hospital rides •Through canoe rides, late night campfires with june bugs in boxes and spider shadows •Through late nights with sci-fi movies, scary picture shows and Johnny Carson’s late night show •Through tents on beaches and snakes in outhouses •Through roads trips and driving tips •Through scoops, Frisbees, baseball bats and batting cages •Through climbing trees and trimming hedges •Through rock hunting and rock climbing •Through money in jars and banged up cars •Through Sunday games, dates at night and scary movies •Through Oreo’s with milk and brownies with coffee •Through coat closets at parties and hospital stitches •Through boyfriends and husbands •Through children and grandchildren •Through droopy drawers and distant shores •Through bag phones and cell phones •Through the great mysteries of life and the great mystery of death •Through planet Earth and the Cosmos! You were always there, compassionate, strong, loving and wise. You taught us that the most important emotion was love and love is what makes life worth living. By your living example we have come to know, feel and understand love in the many ways that it presents itself. Your love for our family was omnipotent and deep. Words cannot express how deeply I love you and will always love you. Enjoy your fantastic voyage, DAD! Love Pam

My dad was the most kind-hearted, yet humble man you could ever meet. To him family was everything. He would rather hang out with his wife and 5 daughters playing games, watching Family Classics and eating popcorn, than hang out with his friends. I learned so much from him not only growing up but also as an adult. I will treasure the memories of my father forever. He will always be our “Gentle Giant” and my source of strength and integrity. I love you dad, Kelly
