It may or may not have been posted here, but Jerry Sweet of Ely, Ia passed away a week ago. You may know him from Hershey or other meets. As a little kid, my grandpa would take me to Jerrys. Often when I would stop, he would be finishing a brass era body body that would be going across the country. He was only 15 minutes from my house.
I am so very sorry to hear of Jerry's passing. I met him at Chickasha a few years ago. He was a true artist when it came to rebuilding a model T body. I saw a few examples of his work and it was impressive.
We are losing so many of the really great ones. My thoughts go out to his family and friends.
I bought my first Model T Roadster from Jerry at Hershey many years ago. I still have it.
Sorry to learn of his passing. May God bless.
Sad news. I too knew Jerry for many years, if only from conversations on the phone. He was a great guy and I'm sorry I never was able to meet him personally.
