Jerry was the second of 11 children and spent most of his time outside of school working on the family farm. It was here where he learned the value of a dollar, the importance of family, and a tenacious work ethic that he carried with him all through his life.After high school he attended Marquette University and received his B.S. in Finance. Following graduation in 1963 he joined the US Navy as a Communications Officer stationed on the USS Bennington in the Pacific Corridor and also spent some time at NATO Headquarters in Naples, Italy. He moved to Denver following the Navy in 1967. On July 12th, 1969 he married Marsha (Elliott) Kintzle and had two daughters.

Jerry was a distinguished and honorable man. He was very generous and loved sharing his time and talents with people and organizations he loved and believed in. He loved to travel and share his love of history. His curiosity took him all over the world. He enjoyed coffee most mornings and happy hours in the afternoon. His favorite pass times were golfing and bike riding. He loved his traditions like Cheyenne Frontier days since 1968, family trips to Mexico, pheasant dinners/ Denver Bronco games, dinner club, and family gatherings in Iowa. He was so proud of his family and being raised on a farm. He always prioritized time with family, especially Jill, Ethan, Jenna, his special friend Lisa, and his siblings. He took great pride in being a father and grandfather; Jill, Ethan, & Jenna were celestial in his eyes. We will greatly miss his amazing and remarkable traits.
