Jerry was born on March 16, 1935, in Bridgeport, CT. The son of Charles and Victoria Flynn, second born of 4 children, he is survived by his sister Patricia Pennell, her husband Robert, and their four children, Charles, Nathan, Katie and Jesse.

Jerry married Ethel Ruth Judson on August 14, 1954 in New Milford, CT; sweet hearts that met while he delivered milk to the local milk truck pick up, only a few minutes from her home. Jerry and his wife ran a successful farm and trade business in CT until they moved to Ogdensburg NY in August 1978, where they bought a larger dairy farm. Jerry loved visiting other farmers and spending hours talking with them, seeing what they needed or what they wanted to sell; his mission was to help as many farmers as he could and he did! He was a people person and everyone started out as his friend. He has many friends and their families would love to see him come for visits. He had a loving heart and was willing to help others in need. He also loved his western movies and resting his eyes while sitting in his chair. He will be greatly missed by many.
