I am so sorry to hear of Jerry's passing. I was scrolling through the obits and saw it and I was shocked! My sincere condolences. I grew up down the street and I remember one time he was in his Mach 1 I believe and my Mom was in her Ford and they raced down the street! I wish I would have known sooner.
