Remembering Jerry

Date: January 24th, 2012

Vista Verde Ranch, Colorado Luxury Ranch

All of us at the ranch want to thank those of you who have written such eloquent and heartfelt notes to us on the blog, on Facebook and via email.  We really appreciate your support in the past couple days since we lost Jerry.

For those of you who have inquired, there will be services in Indiana on Friday, January 27 at 11am.  I don’t have all the details on that service at this time.

Jerry’s Colorado family and friends will celebrate his life at the ranch on Sunday, January 29 from 2-4.

Please keep the wonderful notes, messages and thoughts coming about Jerry in lieu of flowers.  We are keeping them all for Peggy and her family.  Also, if any of you have a nice photo of Jerry at the ranch, we would love to be able to put together a slideshow of his cowboy days.  If you do have a photo, please send it along to Krista at This ranch was his dream, and we want to remember him living it to the fullest.

    I have a wonderful memory of Jerry right before the ranch was purchased from the Munns. It was February and I was standing at the barn talking to John about the possibility of VVR being sold. At that very moment around the bend I saw the Throgmartins, all on horseback. They looked so happy. I’m sorry I never had the opportunity to chat with Jerry since, by all accounts, he was a wonderful human being. Condolences from Cory and myself to the Throgmartin and the VVR family.

    It is hard to believe that the gentle giant that was Jerry is gone. He could never be on Undercover Boss, since he was always part of the everyday workings of the ranch while we were there a couple years ago. He was riding his horse during the riding lessons, giving advice to help this very inexperienced rider. He sat with his guests during the meals and mingled with his employees in the ranch kitchen. He must have been a wonderful man to have in your lives. Our condolences to his family and all who worked with him.
