9 condolences for “Jerry Allen Judy, Sr.”

  1. My sincere sympathy to the family. I so enjoyed the last phone chat with Jerry, as we did all his visits to Pendleton Co. in the 90s as he researched the Nelson and Judy lines; I hope someone will become the steward of the wealth of information he compiled. His work with Harry A. Nelson on the potomachighlandroots webside has been appreciated by many. But I fear that many of the questions I planned to ask him, both from my Pendleton Co. and Hamphire Co. Saville and Combs connections, will remain unanswered.

  2. So sorry to hear about Jerry! Our heart aches for you and your family during this time of your sorrow.

  3. Uncle Jerry was a really cool uncle. Very good hearted man. Always enjoyed the Judy sense of humor. Much respect for his military service. Love and prayers for the family. Hottie.

  4. Praying for all of you. A great man who will be missed..Left behind
    a great legacy. A man to be proud of. Josie’s daughter Shirley

  5. I am so sorry to hear of the passing of my cousin Jerry. Hid dad and my grandfather were brothers. You will be missed Jerry.
