I remember a past conversation I had with Jerry about American muscle cars and his classic Camaro. Jerry’s late father, BM2 John W. Van Esler, USN served as a crew member aboard USS North Carolina BB-55 during World War II in the Pacific. At the time of the battleships’s commissioning on 9 April 1941, BB-55 was considered the world’s greatest sea weapon and as the first of the Navy\'s modern battleship program and received a great deal of attention from the press and earned the nickname \"Showboat\". During World War II, the battleship NORTH CAROLINA participated in every major naval offensive in the Pacific area of operations and earned 15 battle stars to become the most decorated American battleship of the war.

Carol, I am so sorry for your loss. Jerry was a good friend that I worked with at GM for many years. Jerry was one of the good guys, everyone liked him and he truly will be missed.

So sorry for your loss, Carol. Didn\'t find out about Jerry\'s passing until the union meeting Tuesday. Had many fun times with Jerry at bowling--what a good bowler and all-around great guy he was! You were always his rock and devoted helper these past years, a wonderful example of a loving and caring wife. Our thoughts and prayers are with you and your family. Dave and Connie Eilmann
