Jerry was born on September 8, 1946, in Helena, Montana. He was the son of Patrick and Mildred (Barone) Martello.


Jerry enjoyed being in the great-outdoors working with his hands and shooting the bull---- with his friends.

He loved golfing,  hunting with his family and heading to Idaho to fish Steelhead with friends.  He always had his garage ready to hang and cut meat during hunting season. He made tasty sausage and smoked one heck of a turkey. Jerry had retired from the Montana Department of Transportation where he worked as the Maintenance Supervisor.
