    We are sadden to hear of Jerry’s passing. Jerry was my high school friend and he was the reason I joined the Navy Reserve.. We had lots of good times together in our senior year and while attending drills. I had talked to him many years ago but we were never able to get together again. I am sorry to have missed that opportunity. I offer you my deepest sympathy.

    Jerry will be missed by his friends in the histotechnology community. He was part of the Founding Board of the National Society for Histotechnology. He served the society in a number of official capacities besides many others as a member concerned for his chosen field of work. His official capacities within NSH included Vice President, Region Director, HOD Secretary, Budget & Finance and Bylaws committees then as our representative to CLSI. Kerry Crabb
