My sincere condolences to the Cherney family. Julie (and John back in the day) has shared many great stories of her parents with her softball teammates of which I am one. On behalf of the RELICS I will be making a donation in Jerry's name to the St. Pius X Catholic Church.

I couldn't have asked for a better father. He was a great example of love and commitment to his family and community. I hope that I can carry out his legacy in my life. Will miss you, Dad. But I know that you're in heaven...probably golfing :)

May you be comforted in this time. Even though I am a friend of Julie's and did not know her dad, I was encouraged from his life story shared here. What a remarkable man. If only we could all aspire to live a life so full of service and family. Our prayers are with you and the family.

What a truly remarkable person, and to have had him in the lives of so many family and friends for so long. He leaves a great legacy and many sad hearts, but the memories will always remain. This obituary was a great tribute to the life he led. He touched many in his lifetime and made us happy to have known him. My prayers and condolences to the family, but know he will live on in your hearts.
Peace of mind is a call away. We're here when you need us most.

Bernie, What a beautiful life and touching obituary. The world has lost a caring and giving man. How fortunate you have been able to have shared your childhood with an older brother of such character building examples. Both of you St. Norbert graduates who use your education to make the world a better place. My prayers are with you and Jerry’s family to hold onto those wonderful memories.

So sorry to learn of Jerry's passing, even though he'd lived a long and full life. To say the obituary is very interesting is a compliment. To quote a Chernyism, it is hardly to believe he's gone! We extend our condolences to all the family.

I remember Jerry very well, although it has been some time since we have been together. It is impossible to forget his ready smile and the sense of always feeling welcome in his presence. He will certainly be missed but he leaves a wonderful and lasting legacy.
