Jerold Edward Aust (known as “TC Willie”)  1/28/55 — 8/6/11


From Sandra Aust: “Jerry was a good friend to everyone.  Willing to help out a brother or sister in need.  I will never forget his sense of humor and how he could make me laugh.  He made everyone laugh and feel good about themselves.  Jerry was a hard worker, he volunteered at the DESC and was always moving and working or helping someone in need.  For awhile he was in Tent City2 and everyone called him TC Willie because of his long ponytail like Willie Nelson.  I know he touch my life in a profound and wonderful way and Jerry was a brother to men and women alike he was always a gentleman.”
