WELLINGTON - Jerry Allen Herrle, 28, son, husband, uncle, nephew, cousin, friend and local artist, passed away Oct. 6, 2005 in Puyallup, Wash.
Jerry Herrle was born on April 20, 1977 in Medford, Ore. He was raised and loved by father, Jerry Herrle of Grants Pass, Ore.
Jerry was loved by all who came into contact with him for he had a sense of humor that reflected life and a happiness for giving and helping others. He overly enjoyed fishing and eating that which was caught, to the point of fishing for days on end and only returning home to shower and change clothes. Jerry was known to have casted his fishing line from Washington to Oregon, to California, to the Keys in Florida, to the rivers and lakes in Utah. He had a rare gift, a sense and touch to know when to pull the line and hook the fish. He was Hemingway's "Old Man of the Sea", if there is a big fish near his cast, he would bring it in.
Jerry was known in Wellington as the artist and sculptor that could be seen carving statues in his driveway on the north side of Highway 6. Jerry was an apprentice of Modern Design under the the guidance of his Uncle W.E. Stevens of Wellington.
Loved ones left behind are so numerous and far reaching that only Jerry could name them all. We would all say that knowing Jerry is like feeling what the essence of what life is all about. Though he is gone in body form, his energy, stories and smile lives with us daily.
Do you think the Utah Legislature should increase appropriations for public education in Utah beyond the current legislative trend in the past few years of funding only for growth in student population?
