Jerbear passed away
« on: December 12, 2013, 10:58:44 AM »
Got word Jerbear passed away this AM. If anyone lives close by Kathy May need comforting. Jerry was a great man with high ideals for us all.
Gentlemen, when the enemy is committed to a mistake we must not interrupt him too soon.

I am sitting here in tears...  I just lost a friend..

He was a wonderful man, who never knew a stranger..  Had several meals at his house with his lovely wife Kathy..  I can not even imagine he is gone.. The world is a better place for his being here, and is now worse off that he is gone.

I hope someone is close enough to Kathy to see if she needs anything at all...  She has to be devastated.

RIP my friend... I will miss you terribly.
By my honorable conduct as a hunter let me give a good example and teach new hunters principles of honor, so that each new generation can show respect for their god, other hunters and the animals, and enjoy the dignity of the hunt.

Calling an illegal alien an 'undocumented immigrant' is like calling a drug dealer an 'unlicensed pharmacist'.

Very sorry to hear. He was a fixture here. RIP

Very sorry to hear this. Jerry was a very generous man. Five years ago he let us camp out at his house, let us hang our deer in his garage, and one evening invited us into his home to have dinner with him and Kathy. I'm disappointed that I never got a chance to go back down and visit. Great guy and lots of us will be missing him.

Oh man that is horrible,

His family is in my prayers, We will miss you Jerbear.

That's very sad. RIP Jerry.

For those who didn't see it, this was Jerbear's last post, from two days ago:

Virtual Campfire / My Turn. Need Your Prayers

I have been slowly going down hill.  Haven't hunted for deer or turkeys for the past two years.  Been going to doctors in Hood River, paying big prices, but getting nothing in return.  Got tired of it and went to a local doc in Goldendale.  He is getting things done, but it may be too late. I was sent to the breathing clinic here in Goldendale, at the hospital.  The gal that gave me the tests came into waiting room and put one of those oxygen things on my finger.  It read 95 as it always does.  We had walked about 30 feet and I was huffing and puffing, and she checked the thing again.  All she said was,"You need oxygen.  So here I sit today on oxy 24/7.  Right now it looks like COPD.  Had one of the high class clowns  would have found this a few years ago, it would not be so bad. I am 74, so things are bound to happen.  I have not smoked since 1980.  Throw them away people.  Will keep you posted.
