Jerry, 622 , The Baker Boy, was the nicest fellow one would ever want to meet or have for a neighbor. As his tribute states, Jerry loved talking on radios, a wonderful hobby that brings together many good and different people over the airwaves - ones that you would probably never run into any other way. I loved listening to his stories about working in a bakery much of his life up in Indiana, and he and I and the rest of the gang had a big ol' time chatting about everything else like we CB'ers do. Jerry will be greatly missed and his big signal calling out CQ DX for the 622 in the Backwoods of Georgia will ring throughout the heavens for eternity. Rest in peace my friend

You'll be missed. Every time we ever talked I had a smile on my face just because we had a conversation. Such a genuine soul and a top shelf CB operator. Rest in peace 73's Baker Boy. Your 308 In the Backwoods of Georgia.
