We may have not been close but the love you have shown our sister and your children is a legacy that any man would be proud of. Rest well. Anthony Paduano, June 30, 2022 Dave and I met your Jerry while picking up Susan Fernandez after her car accident. Where she broke several ribs and your parents so generously let her recover at their Palmdale home. He showed us his gorgeous red pickup truck he had worked so hard rebuilding. He told us about the fire in the engine that ruined the beautiful paint job. He told us how the insurance company would not cover the damage. We also talked about the beer tap he had recently installed. I believe he enjoyed using a smoker or bbq. Cooking for the love of his life, Eileen. Suzanne Margulin Chambers, June 25, 2022 I met Jerry and Eileen because of their daughter Kim. I would go and stay at their house and they always treated me like a daughter. Jerry would take us to look at the model train place he would go to. My favorite part of my visits would just be hanging out and talking with Jerry and Eileen. They always made me feel so welcomed. Jerry was a special man that made you laugh and was fun to spend time with. He loved going fishing at Convict Lake with his family. I never got to go but I loved hearing the stories. Jerry you will be missed! Thanks for always making me feel welcome! Cassandra Barcelo, June 25, 2022 Jerry was one of the best people I know. I met Eileen & Jerry 30 years ago, when Eileen and I were in the same weight loss program. Jerry had a wonderful sense of humor, and loved to joke around with me. When I had my knee replaced I stayed with them and Jerry took me to all of my physical therapy appointments. I will really miss that quick wit he had. He was a truly great human being!! Susan Fernandez, June 25, 2022 Please accept our deepest condolences for your loss! Our prayers are with you and your family. Mr. Kreipl was a nice and friendly neighbor.
