In 1959, Jerry married Mary Grace Collins.  Together they had four children.

Pleasant.  He retired from the Highway Patrol in 1993 but immediately went back to work as a civilian for DPS as a Motor Vehicle Inspection Technician where he worked in Fort Stockton, Texas and retired the second time in 1999.

 

Jerry was a man of great character and integrity and was devoted to his family and it’s legacy.  He was known and respected by most all Law Enforcement Agencies in West Texas.  He was a devout Christian who was committed to his family and church family, and spent a great deal of his day studying scripture and praying for all that were in need.
