I am so sorry for your loss. I was a teacher at Winona Senior High and became acquainted with Jerry through his job in maintenance. Visiting with Jerry at the end of the day was a highlight of my day. He was very personable. We had many pleasant conversations. As a sub I had recently run into him in his new position at the school district. He always took the time to catch up with me. Jerry was a great guy and I am sure his family will carry this legacy forward. With great sympathy. Ruthanne Weispfenning former Wshs German teacher
