I recently received notice of the passing of Jerry L Tener, Sr. of Bloomington, MN. He was the son of Hampden Frost TENER and Virginia Letson TENER. He was 67 years of age. The notice received stated:
"TENER, Jerry L. Sr. age 67, of Bloomington, MN. Forever optimistic, passed away March 12, 2008. He will be greatly missed by his family and friends! Burial and services will be held in Pittsburgh PA at a later date. In lieu of flowers contributions may be made to the charity of your choice."
He had three children and at least two grandchildren.
