Sad news. I seem to recall reading he can trace his ancestry back to the Mayflower.

This is a sad day to lose an actor of his capability. Jerry was always able to play such unique roles, like this role on the show "Coach". He will be greatly missed.

For me, he was the best part of that show. So entertaining!

Definitely sad news. I have asked to be added to the trusted list so that I can add his parents, but if someone gets there before me, they are:

Father - Van Dyke-496

Mother - McCord-3457

His brother is already on WikiTree and already connected to the global tree:

It also appears there is a duplicate for Jerry:

I'll work on getting these merged.
