Jerry Triplett of Winterset, Iowa was a local legend of sorts, always doing something in the community and trying to make people happy. Jerry often dressed up as Uncle Sam for various town events, sang God Bless America, and marched in parades across Iowa. Jerry's home was open to hundreds of grandchildren and others, as he always welcomed people and enjoyed his life. He enjoyed volunteering to drive a delivery truck on Valentine's Day and serenading the recipients. Jerry passed away on Wednesday after attending the State Fair Parade. He was 78 years old. Jerry will be missed by his family and entire community.
