He was born on August 28, 1941, in Pelly, Texas, to the proud parents Woodrow Wilson Lehr and Raye Collins Lehr.

Jerry spent most of his life in Baytown, Texas, and graduated from Robert E. Lee High School in 1959.

A spiritual man with a deep faith in God and Jesus, Jerry's life was guided by his unwavering belief and love for his religion.
