Jerome enjoyed cooking BBQ when family came to visit him. He always was willing to drive the kids around the pasture to look at cattle. He made sure the kids had soft drinks, ice cream, and grandmas Kolaches. Jerome also enjoyed driving around checking out the area to see what shape the crops were in, and keep up with the latest oil and gas exploration. He was a frequent visitor to the local parish picnics and festivals to get some to go plates in his later years when cooking became difficult for him.
