On January 29, 2022, at the age of 82, Jerry Smith, who resided in Elkins Park, Pennsylvania, unexpectedly passed away at his home with his family by his side. He was a member of the choir as well as the lector and eucharistic minister at St. James Church in Elkins Park, Pennsylvania. He was a man of great faith who was loved and respected by all for his intelligence, kindness, and hilarious sense of humor. He had a large circle of friends and was known for his strong faith.
He received his high school diploma from Father Judge in 1957 and his college degree from La Salle (1961).
