He took his own life. Sad really. A very very smart man who just didnt have the best way of communicating his ideas.

Yeah it is funny but ole Jerry was one of a kind. Interestingly though some of the greatest inventors and innovators in history have been considered quite eccentric just like he was. I guess in order to see what the future may hold you have to be able to think out of the box so to speak. RIP Jerry you will be missed.

Mr. Coffey and I had many interactions over the years. Some were pleasant and some were not. He died on his birthday.

I didn't always agree with him, but he had a passion to make the world better.

May I ask which Jerry you are speaking of? and from where? My father was Jerry Coffey who passed away on sept. 19th 2012 from stomach cancer.
If it's not the same man its funny that my dad to was described as being crazy, one of a kind and had ideas to create many amazing things that we could only dream of.

The Jerry we are speaking of died April 16th. He lived in Gamewell and was always concocting ideas to help Caldwell County. He had Chevy emblems tattooed on each cheek.

Jerry was one of a kind and will be truly missed by many. He tried for many years to bring ideas that would build Caldwell Co. up; mostly the Town of Gamewell. He was proud of where he came from and wanted others to be proud too. He loved to show off his different cars. He rebuilt so many over the years including a helicopter. The signs on his cars showed his opinions because he was not afraid to tell it like was. One of the best mechanics around. Would give his shirt off his back if you needed it. He loved to joke around and have fun. He loved his wife, Gwen and missed her everyday since she passed. He loved and was very proud of his daughter, Jan. Displaying her works his cars also.
