On November 27, 1961, Jerald married Barbara Giles at Immanuel Lutheran Church in Tyler. Their union was blessed with four children and 51 years of life together. The couple purchased the farm in Marshfield Township where they farmed their entire married life. Jerry enjoyed raising pigs, sheep, and especially quarter horses. For many years, he milked cows and over the past ten years raised Angus cattle. On Friday, August 17, 2012, Jerry died unexpectedly at his home at the age of 72 years, seven months and four days.
