His family said he invented a way to sit on the deck at the ranch house and trap cattle as they came in for water by pulling a rope tied to the cattle pen gate.A fter Jerry’s retirement, he and his beloved wife of 37 years, Gayle, spent much of their time at their ranch in Austwell. They loved working together on the ranch and riding horses and fourwheelers when the ranch work was done.
