My fondest memories I have with Uncle Jerry is when he and i would go and buy flowers at Home Depot so I can plant them in my yard and of course buying hotdogs and pop for the both of us and bringing them back to my yard for lunch. This would be our annual event. Uncle Jerry was a wonderful and thoughtful man and will be missed tremendously! May you R.I.P.

Uncle Gerry and I, along with with his Nephew, Dean, and sometimes Kim, would meet behind the woodshed in the Alley. We had some great hash it out sessions. I will truly miss Gerry, as will my wife, Barb, and his great wisdom and friendship. Godspeed to the Roche family. Love, the Even’s
