 Jerry worked for over 35 years as a truck driver at Carter Rice/Teamsters Local 170, retiring in 1993.  In his retirement he was able to travel to Florida for several years, experienced a cruise, and even crossed the pond to visit his daughter in London.    He also very much enjoyed just taking short spontaneous trips in New England.
