Jerry was born September 24, 1962 in Yankton, SD to John and Gloria (Frank) Moore. He graduated from Pender High School in 1981. On May 1, 2004, Jerry married Tammy Powley. Jerry was a wonderful husband and father. His proudest title was “Papa” to his seven grandchildren. He was their biggest supporter rarely missing any of their activities. He loves teaching them to hunt, fish, and wave the big “L.” A hard worker with a soft heart Jerry never met a stranger and was always the first to offer his help to others. He did things his own way never making excuses because as he always said, it is what it is. He will be missed by the many friends he made along the ride.
