His love of airplanes and flying resulted in a commercial pilot’s license. Jerry loved to spend time with family and friends at the cabin on Rush Lake that he and Ellen’s father, Einar Duvick built in the 1950’s. He spent many, many hours working with his hands building toys for his children and grandchildren, working on projects at home and at the lake, and lending a helping hand to family, friends and neighbors. You could always count on Jerry. He leaves a legacy of the utmost integrity, respect, patience and trustworthiness.
