Custom Dust Covers for Classic Consoles/11/23/17 Happy Holidays!

Recommended Posts

I sent condolences to the paypal email address I used for my last purchase (papanannysfunstuff1971 at gmail.com) and got a very nice reply from Barb today. I assume she will be able to let the community know if she intends to continue this business.

 

An online obituary can be found here.

 

I just caught up to this and found out Jerry is gone. I had a chance to meet him in person last year when I bought 4 or 5 covers from him. It was a quick meeting, but he seemed like a great guy. Barb was in the car too.

 

I added to my condolences to the site linked above - not sure what happens to them from there. I'm sad to hear of his passing, he added a very real contribution to this community.

I just heard about Jerry's passing the other day, such sad news. I've talked on and off with him regarding covers and such for years now. He was really great to deal with, and you got the sense he was a good guy, grounded with a lot of common sense. Condolences to his family, and I'm glad to hear that Barb and family will continue with the covers. They're really the best ones I've ever purchased, and with those new Sega and Turbografx logos on the go I'm sure I'll be able to support with a few more. He wasn't an old guy by any stretch, and I wished he were able to stay for years to come. Makes you really take a look at your own life when things like these happen. Rest in Peace, Jerry.

Such sad news... I was looking up this thread to make another order and found out Jerry had passed. My condolences to Barb and I hope Jerry is in heaven looking down on us, playing his favorite videogames in peace...

Bad form to post this inside another individuals for sale thread isn't it? Should have made this a separate post.

 

I did hear from Barb and as has been stated, she and her daughter plan to carry on the covers as long as they are able. I've of course offered my continued assistance with logo digitizing for her as needed.

Ugh. Not sure how I missed this. I loved dealing with Jerry and Barb over the years and I think I bought about 25 of their covers for a bunch of different systems. Jerry was always so friendly and he will be very missed around here. My sincerest condolences to Barb and her family. RIP.

Deleted tasteless posts and quoted replies. :mad: Benefit of a doubt given, because the post came from Japan, if it re-appears it will be a full on ban.

 

Best wishes Barb, very sorry to hear. R.I.P.

I just heard about this the other day.. Very sad news. I've bought a few of their awesome covers over the years as well and plan to buy more. I'm glad the business will continue on.

 

My condolences to you, Barb. RIP Jerry

Been dealing with Barb directly through Jerry's old email and she's still doing covers as previously stated in the thread.

She is currently only using Ebay since she doesnt know how to get in here but here is the email she's using for direct contact

 

[email protected]

 

Maybe a mod can update Jerry's main post since they are still very much for sale and Barb has no access.

 

If this seems out of line feel free to delete but we have been messaging back and forth about it for weeks.

 

RIP Jerry

Are these still being made? I could use a few more if so.

Look a few posts up for Barb's e-mail address... #337.
