    MY sincerest condolences and prayers for the Dahlberg family. I knew Jerry thru Shiawassee String Orchestra. He will always be remembered for his Sponge Bob Square Pants impersonation when we were playing for the various elementary schools is Owosso. There will never be another one like him. No one will ever be Sponge Bob the way he was. He really had the kids going that day. Thank you for sharing him with us. Kathy Fleming, Cello

    I was shocked and saddened to just learn that Jerry had passed away. It had been many years since I last seen my old childhood friend Jerry. We grew up together on Ridge St. in Owosso. Jerry’s dad Al was a photographer and he had a garage behind their home that he turned into his photo shop. I was amazed the first time Jerry showed me how to develop film into a picture it was so cool. I spent may nights at Jerry’s family home we used to sit in his room and talk/dream about what we wanted to do when we grew up. We used to have so much fun growing up together in the old neighborhood, it seemed like it was yesterday. Well my old friend until we meet again and we will, I will cherish all the great memories of our childhood and of you.

    RIP my friend, Tim Rood Portland, MI
