Jerome was my Uncle. One of his greatest passions was playing the guitar which is where I learned to play country music. He was an excellent guitarist. He was also very athletic, mostly water skiing, hunting and fishing as he grew up on the Magnolia Springs River in South Alabama. He was a true champion and hero and has been missed by so many. I have written a song to his tribute.
Fort Ben is where they trained him,
You are missed, Uncle Jerome. God Bless.
