Jerry retired from the Ford Lima engine plant in 1994 and enjoyed time traveling around the country with his well known bus tours for years. He was also known for his wood carving skills. In his retirement he picked up the hobby and enjoyed making wild life wood carvings that he won ribbons for.

He was also known for being very involved in his church, The Church of Jesus Christ of Later Day Saints.
