Privately Jerry always told me that he wanted me to read his eulogy. My answer to him was you would probably be reading mine. So here it goes. I met Jerry over 30 years ago. At that time, I was a new truck driver, and I knew nothing about what I was getting into. Jerry recognized that right off the bat. We were in Baltimore, and I needed a load back. Jerry called a broker that he always dealt with and told him I was his nephew and that’s where it all started. From that time on for a few years Jerry taught me the business we were in and where Jerry went, I wasn’t that far behind. Little did we know a friendship would form that would last a lifetime. On occasion we would have a falling out just like pretty much everyone he knew but we always seemed to work out the problem. As a result of our close friendship, I came to know his family as he came to know mine. Jerry always made me feel that his family was an extension of my own family. We both experienced the good and bad in both our lives. We were on our way back from Florida when he learned of the passing of his late brother Paul. When my father passed away in 2005, he was there for me in my grief. He saw both my children grow as I saw Jason grow into the adults they are. I remember attending multiple football games while Jason was playing in High School and in college and when Jason scored or caught the ball there was no prouder father in those stands than him. He would always talk about his grandchildren, whom he loved dearly. I can also say, anytime we traveled for business in trucks he was always worried about Carlotta and through all the jokes I could tell that there was always a love there. I think one of the worst times was when he sold his truck and fully retired against any advice from others. At that point I think he lost a sense of purpose. Kind of like he didn’t know what to do with himself. Shortly after he retired, I purchased a new truck and we both flew to Kentucky to pick it up. We drove all night through an ice storm only to be met with one of the biggest snowstorms in November ever. Several inches of snow fell that day and what we thought was going to be four hours left in our trip turned into about 11 hours. Thought the last few years I would take him out on the truck or take him shooting or take him with me to see my mother at the shore. He met my brothers. Me, my son Anthony and Jerry even spent a weekend in Myrtle Beach South Carolina at my brother’s house where he met a new friend. My brother had an elderly friend that everyone called Uncle Mike. Mike was a NY Italian guy that has his house set up like a corner bar. He had beer on tap and oldies playing and that was heaven for Jerry. We had so much fun that night. That is just one of the good times. I always looked to Jerry as a father figure that always offered good advice or his opinion on certain things. Sometimes I took his advice and there are times I thought it was best to follow my own instincts. At any case, he would never steer me into the wrong direction. I could keep on going but I must end it somewhere. Just one thing, when it’s my turn to walk through the Pearly Gates of Heaven and be judged by Saint Peter, I fully expect Jerry to be there and say something like” Hey Pete, let that fat kid in, that’s my nephew.”

Carlotta & Jason, I am so saddened to see that Jerry passed away. He was a great man that will be missed by so many. It has truly been a pleasure to know him...first as the cool truck driver who lived across the street from me as a child, and then later in life when he strolled into the doctor's office where I work! I know this is not an easy time for the family, but know you are in my loving thoughts and prayers always. On behalf of George, Diane, Sandi, George, Billy, Jeff, and all of us here at Dr. Petruncio's office, may he rest in peace.
