Please accept my condolences on the death of Jerry. I worked with him at Hullenkremer Construction Company in the 1960's. Jerry was a true gentleman and it was always a pleasure to work with him.

I knew Mr. Vossler from an office I worked in. He was a quick favorite that grew into friendship over the years. He was loved by all and an absolute joy to talk with. He remembered kids names and always asked about our family and the dogs too. They just don’t make them like him anymore. I’d easily say my life has been better from knowing him and I’m a better person because of what I learned from him and his amazing life stories. He is now reunited with his wife and Mac dogs. ~ RIP Mr. V ~
