Jerold was a straight to the point kind of man. He grew up during a time where foolishness wasn’t tolerated. His hobbies included working and when he got done with that he worked some more. Jerold spent his free time critiquing other’s work. There was never guessing where you stood with Jerold or where he stood. He was a master carpenter by trade and took great pride in a job well done. He was a Corporal in the United States Army and faithfully served his country during a time of uncertainty. It was done with the hope of having a better country for this children and grandchildren to live in. Jerold was a lifelong member of Baxterville Baptist Church where he served over 50 years as Deacon. Jerold will be remembered as a dedicated, loving and devoted husband, father, grandfather and friend to all.
