To Patricia and family - please accept my deepest condolences on Jerry’s passing. I first met Jerry in the late ‘60’s at a Hammond Organ Service Seminar I attended with my Dad. During the many years since then, Jerry provided personal and professional technical guidance to me and an entire generation of Hammond Organ Service technicians. He will be certainly be missed by us all....
