Jerry ‘s wonderful laugh and great sense of hummer were know to many OBX locals. He was a great friend and a great father in law. He always made me feel welcome and a part of his family. Rest in peace dear friend – love you buddy.

Debbie, Denise, Deanna, and all you Volk Folks, please accept my love and sympathy. From my days at KDHPD, I got to know a few of you, and it was a good knowing. I partook of the wares of the Sandwich Shop, enjoying every slenderizing bite, I pray y’all will have a host of memories to tide you over until the Great Day when we all are together again. Love, Mary

My thoughts and prayers go out to your family during this sad time. I have great memories of Mr. Jerry (and Ms. LaVerne) and how welcoming they were when I would stay with Deanna on weekends at your home on Sothel Street. Your family has a special place in my heart and it is broken, right now, for your loss.
Much love and prayers to you all.
