The Living Memorial below was submitted by Jerry in 2011 and is being used as his LM for the Shipley Tribute. Posted by Dr. Ed Dugas on Oct. 2, 2017.
I am still living in Plant City, FL, with my wife Sandra of over 42 years. Sandra is from Lafayette. She became a Registered Nurse and is now retired. We have 3 children (Tina, Angie, and Mike) and 8 grandchildren. I have lost touch with most of my teammates over the years. I recently read TJ's profile and noted he was living in the Dallas area. I have a daughter who lives in McKinney, TX, and was there this past Christmas. Dave Kessler gave me a couple of calls this year looking for information about retiring down here in Florida. Hope to hear from some of you guys from USL.
The recent death of Coach Shipley was sad news. Like TJ, I am truly grateful for Coach taking a chance on me and giving me the opportunity to play college basketball with a great bunch of guys.
