Ann Sillman (Jerry's wife) called today and and informed us that Jerry has died. He died yesterday (7-26-09) afternoon, after 6 weeks with Hospice. of congestive heart failure.

Jerry was a founder of Rationalists of East Tennessee and spent countless hours promoting the group. It is due to Jerry’s vision that RET (formerly known as The Reality Fellowship) has such an inclusive foundation instead of being narrowly defined by any one national organization.

Jerry was one of the very first people in “The Reality Fellowship” that people met when attending a meeting of this fledgling group in 1996 in the old Candy Factory.

A sad day …

We will try to pass along more details as we receive them.
