Power, Gerald L. “Jerry”'s Guestbook

We moved to Liberty and 1977 and I met Jerry at United Super, then had the honor of working with him at Liberty Price Chopper until he retired. He was always a pleasure to work with and one of the nicest men I ever knew. My sympathy to his family. Karen Childress

Jerry and I became friends in 1952 at Liberty High School. We continued our friendship through various high school reunions. He was a neat guy, who will be missed.
