Jerry was son of the late William J. Wall, Sr. and Emily A. Dobbs Wall. Jerry worked at the J. Edward Davie Farm for 44 years. Prior to that, he worked for Harold Fredericksen. Jerry enjoyed restoring Farmall tractors, and collecting toy tractors, toy trucks and toy semi-trucks. He also enjoyed fishing. Jerry was a person who was there to help anyone, anytime. You didn’t even need to ask, and he would be there. Jerry did things as he saw fit, his own way. He lived outside the box. He was a wonderful husband, brother and a wonderful friend to all he met.
Jerry is survived by three brothers Joe (Grace) Wall of Fla., John (Billy Joe) Wall of Fla. and George (Evelyn) Wall of Fla.; two nieces Carrieann (Nathan) Wall and Sarah Wall, both of Fla.; two brothers-in-law Gary Rogers of Seneca Falls and Alan “Buck” Rogers of Geneva; sister-in-law, Lori (Don) DePillo of Penn Yan; nieces and nephews Scott and Bryan Rogers, Seth and Brook Rogers and Chris, Matt and Jason Rogers; two aunts Connie and Gerry; one uncle, Jim Parker and many cousins and numerous friends.
Jerry was predeceased by his wife, Linda R. Wall on Oct. 21, 2009; his nephew, J.R. Wall; and his brothers-in-law John Rogers and Mark Rogers.
