Jerry was a loving husband to Susan E. (Fellows) Standefer and they spent many happy years together. They enjoyed spending time with their friends and family and listening to live music. Jerry was a beloved father to his sons, Jerry B. Jr. (Tish) and Nathan, and stepdaughter, Shannon (Richard). Jerry was a proud grandfather to Nequoia, Aiden, Elum, Juda, Jacob, Isabella, Adam, Alexander, and Abigail. He was also a great-grandfather to Odin and Cole.

Jerry loved spending his free time on his computer, where he enjoyed developing websites. He was a member of the Berks Parrothead Club and was a huge fan of Jimmy Buffett and Jimmy and the Parrots. He was a lover of all Philadelphia sports (Go Eagles and Phillies!) and enjoyed watching top-fuel drag racing.

The family would like to express their gratitude to Encompass Health of Reading for the care and support they provided to Jerry over the years.
