A Celebration of Jerry's Life will be held at Clark Family Funeral Chapel on Sunday, April 28, at 11 a.m. with Benjamen Evers officiating. A Luncheon will immediately follow in the Reflections Reception Center. The family will receive friends the day of the service from 10 a.m. until the time of the service.
