Jerry Booher

 

It is with great sorrow to inform everyone that Jerry Booher has passed away. As many of you know he and I were married and worked together from 1982 to 2008. He is responsible for putting Intarsia on the map. He promoted Intarsia, I just enjoyed doing it. 
I set up a memorial, please share some of your memories on the site. 
This memorial was created in honor of Jerry Lee Booher of Donna, Texas. Jerry was born on May 14, 1946 in Springfield, OH and passed on January 5, 2017

So sorry to hear about Jerry. I read how he used the band saw to make intarsia and so this encouraged me when I didn’t have a scroll saw to go for it anyway. I love intarsia and learned about it from Jerry and Judy, for this I am ever grateful.

Sorry to read of Jerry’s passing. He seemed to be a good man and loved he craft. He also seemed to love passing on his skills to your students like myself. My use of the scroll saw is good because of him.

I had the pleasure of enrolling in one of your intermediate classes. We did Molly Mule. You and Jerry were so kind and such helpful teachers. I also remember Jerry’s great BBQ luncheon. My condolences to you and your families.

Judy, we were sorry to read of Jerry’s passing. We had never met him, but felt we knew him through the tapes, books, and patterns he helped create. Keith still makes me the sticks Jerry used to help him when he was scrolling to keep the fingers safe, I use them all the time and they take a beating. Even though you were no longer together, I know it must be hard as you recall the fond memories. We are all thankful for his recognition of your wonderful talent and skills for Intarsia and helping you share them with us. Thanks Jerry and God Bless.

I am so sorry for your loss . If it wasn’t for you and your husband I would have never known about this wonderful, new hobby I am just starting. I have all of your books and read everything I can on line about your intarsia. What a great, everlasting gift Jerry Booher has given us. Thankyou to you both and God Bless you and your family.
Sincerely, Ken Bos
