He enjoyed many things in life, he enjoyed doing hands on work like running an HVAC company, and he taught everyone in the family some type of hands-on work. He loved spending time with his family going on adventures. He was a wonderful son, brother, Uncle, husband, father, grandfather, great grandfather. He served in the Air Force and was honorably discharged. After the Air Force he worked in the oil fields in Texas. Later he went to work at the Biosphere in Tucson. He then opened and operated his own HVAC company until 2006 when his life changed. On Mother's Day in 2006 Jerry had his first heart attack and he was not expected to survive. He was only 50 years old at the time. When he woke up from the coma, we found out that he had a traumatic brain injury due to lack of oxygen. We were told he would never walk or talk again, but we were given a miracle and he did walk and talk again. His daughters Lisa and Missy became full time care givers for their father while still raising their families and working. In 2010 he had open heart surgery and the recovery was long and difficult due to his brain injury from the first heart attack. On Dec 17, 2020 he had another heart attack and we were informed he would not survive another surgery. His doctors gave him 2-3 days to live. His daughters decided to put him on hospice care and take him home.\n\nJerry left this Earth on December 22, 2020 at the age of 64 to be with his son Jason Demiter in Heaven. Two beautiful souls that left the Earth too early. Jerry will be missed and never forgotten, forever loved.\n\nHe is survived by many people, his wife: Yolanda Lara-Demiter, daughters: Melissa Price and Lisa Drollinger, son in-laws: Shawn Price, and Travis Drollinger, grandkids: Alexis Johnson, Trevor Despain, Anthony Falcone, Ashley Falcone, Robert Price, Vincent Price, Lilliana Price, and Mason Drollinger.
