It is with heavy sadness that this sad news reached our ears this night. Local PTG mailing list just sent out notice that our great friend Jerry Groot has passed away. He had been very recently diagnosed with a serious iillness. As details emerge I will update, or others can as well.

God speed old friend, mentor, advocate. You were loved by all and your humor and knowledge and your beautiful humanity will be VERY much missed.

Rick and Jane

Let me be the first to say RIP. He was a great guy, a great forumer, and I'm guessing a fantastic tech. I exchanged many a pleasant PM with him. He will be sorely missed, but it is my prayer that he is now in a better place where illness isn't a worry.

That's very sad news! I just got the news through our chapter email. Very quick from when (I at least, with my head stuck in the shop) heard he wasn't doing well. frown

He will be missed, though I'm sure he's doing much better now. West Michigan owes a lot to him and the Groot clan for keeping the bar high.

My condolences to his wonderful wife, Co, and the rest of his family. It was pancreatic cancer and as is often the case, was caught too late. Rest in peace, my friend. It was a pleasure to know you.

It is a testament to his spirit and character that in the face of the horror of pancreatic cancer-he maintained such a sense of humor and generosity. His posts bear witness to this fact. May we all learn from his example.

My sincere condolences to his family.

As I read this, I was desperately hoping the date of the original post was April 1st. Unfortunately, it wasn't. I appreciated reading what he had to say, and Jerry was helpful to me through PM's as well.

Thoughts and condolences to his friends and family. I'm sorry I never had a chance to meet him in person or play one of the concert instruments under his care.

I only knew him through this forum. What he showed here impressed me greatly. I could tell he was a world class tech. I also greatly respected his role as peacemaker here at PW when things would get out of hand.

He was a good guy.

I am sorry to hear this. I had wondered why we had not heard from him lately, and knowing about his health problems I was afraid for him. I think we had made his last days brighter, and we can all be happy to remember that.

As did I. Jerry was one of the contributors to this forum from whom I learned many subtle points (and some not so subtle ones wink ). I hope that his family and loved ones will find avenues to new strength and happiness.

Jerry was diagnosed in mid-February and by the time it was found, the cancer had metastasized. I've been in contact with him through the treatments, and have been following the CarePage that had been set up for him.

I will caution that there hasn't been an update confirming this on the CarePage that the family maintains, though I have no reason to doubt the information. Jerry will truly be missed. Though I never met him in person, he and I became very good long distance friends. My prayers are with the family.

Even though i'm a new member, been lurking long enough to know who Jerry Groot was. His avatar was a perfect match! I knew something was up when he stopped been a daily contributor. Was hoping he was on vacation...
Now he is gone but will never be forgotten. The knowledge he gave us lives on, here at Piano World. A belated thank you and my condolences to the family and friends.

I couldn't believe this when I read it. Like others here I just knew him through the forum, but he was always so full of life I had no idea he was even sick!

He made a great impact on me with his optimism, wisdom, and general good spirit. Always lightening things up, mediating something for peace, or providing good perspective. So much knowledge and experience shared as well.

You'll be very much missed Jerry. It's a sad day in the piano world.

One of the nicest people here - always ready to help others and a fellow technician that gained my utmost respect. May he rest in peace. So sad to learn of his passing and hope that the huge funny posts that bear his name in the title continue as a means to not only remenber him but to give him continued humour in his new life. Goodbye Jer, it was good to know you my friend. frown

I still remember him mentioning (on which thread I can't recall) that he would see notes that his grandfather had written inside pianos which said, "Hey Jer," so that they would be seen by him when he tuned for that customer years later. You don't often see three generations of experience like that anymore!
How about this customer comment on his web site:

Jun 5, 2012
"Jerry and his dad have been servicing our pianos for around 60 years now. Our pianos always sound so good when they are finished! Thank you so much for your great work!!!"


Thanks, Jerry Groot for the thoughts and the memories! Now, I am sure you are enjoying seeing all of them again. Our loss, your blessing.

I suspected something was not right the last communiqué I had with Jerry. He had not been feeling 100% for some time. Then recently I did not see him around here for a while and began to wonder…...

Commiserations to immediate family, extended family members, friends and associates. Such a significant loss to the wife and children.

Let us all endure the sadness of loss but rejoice together knowing the suffering for Jerry has ended.

We each owe a death — there are no exceptions. Time takes it all, whether you want it to or not. Time takes it all, bears it away, and in the end there is only darkness. Sometimes we find others in that darkness, and sometimes we lose them there again.

I often think about all of us, walking our own journey, alone but together, each in our own time.

That is so sad.. Jer and I were good friends.. and he was my Mentor in this biz.

Jer was a very kind and thoughtful person and willing to give the shirt off his back. He and I went to the PTG convention in KC,Mo two years ago. What a guy... We spent hours together playing BF2 and talking Piano stuff almost every night for the last 5 years.

God Bless You Jer, and my thoughts and prayers go out to his family, Co, Jer Jr. , and Joe.

I'm not sure if sadness or anger is my primary emotion. Either way, it is all part of grief. Jerry was only 56 years old.

Many of you will remember that Jerry had gallbladder surgery in mid-January. Even with a month of recuperation, Jer had not strengthened as expected. Finally, on 2/21/13, he was diagnosed with Stage IV pancreatic cancer. He and Cozette were given the choice of treatment or following a natural course of events.

Jerry underwent two courses of chemotherapy at Cancer Treatment Centers of America in Zion, IL. On 3/21/13, Jerry decided to go on Hospice, rather than continue with treatment.

He was surrounded with the love of his family and friends in his final days. He and Co had sponsored a number of exchange students and one of their exchange daughters flew from Hong Kong for a final visit. Such was the love which surrounded our dear friend.

Think of Jerry with a smile as you remember his delightful humor. Jerry always loved a "good one" and was the author of many.

With joyous memory,

So sorry to hear this.

I think Jerry holds the record for pictures posted on the forums.

I get an email whenever someone uses our picture posting feature. I'd see a list of pictures
posted by Jerry and know he was up to something again.

He was a character all right, but in the best sense of the word.

RIP Jerry, you will be missed.

I am absolutely shocked. Jerry was something of a true friend - I met him here online first and a few months later in his home town. We talked, and exchanged ideas in emails, PMs and on the phone. I am at a loss for words to hear he no longer with us. I for one will miss him and his humor and his humanity. My sincere condolences to his entire family.

I'm also shocked. I appreciated his postings and also he shared a computer program with me.

I wonder -- is there a way to make sure his family could read the outpouring of responses that are appearing here and on the main forum?

Only 56 - how very very sad.

Jerry was a great guy and correspondent - we had many excellent conversions via PMs. A most valuable member of PW. He most certainly will be missed.

However, let's make some lemonade here - colorectal cancers are the number 1 killer of cancers in the USA, and all of the tests except for colonoscopies are worthless. If you're 50 or older, demand your family practice doctor set you up with an exam. You want to catch it before it metastasizes. Once it does, it's over. The cure rate is zero for this type of cancer.

I'm very sorry to hear of his passing. Some of us teased him a lot, but it was because we couldn't wait to hear what kind of a pun he would hurl as a good-natured come-back.

He will be missed.

I did not know Jerry had this type of cancer.

To echo John' v.d. Brook's advice, please get a colonoscopy if you are due for one. In my family, my mom had one done after 50, and they found several polyps. They were not cancer and were removed. However, if she had not had them removed, they most likely would have turned into cancer. 2 of her uncles died from this disease. She passed away from copd.

I had my first one done 5 years ago, mid 50's. They found 2 polyps, not cancerous, but in their words, "suspicious". Their recommendation was to have a colonoscopy every 5 years, not the usual 10.

Sorry, I assumed after reading John's post, that it was colorectal cancer.

I often thought of posting on the Paging Jerry Groot thread just to say thank you for all the laughs. I was always too shy and never did. I hope Jerry knew how much his humor was appreciated by people who silently lurked. I loved reading about his piano tuning adventures and knowledge. I always eagerly opened his posts regardless of the topic. I am very sorry to read of his death. May he rest in peace and rise in glory, and may his memory be for a blessing.

Certainly came as a surprise to me. I read much more than I can ever post. And Jerry's were always helpful in some way. Whether informative, or humorous or both I always enjoyed what he had to say. And always learned something from him.

Only knew him through PW though, but would have enjoyed meeting him in person.

RIP sir.

Live a life that matters
Ready or not, someday it will all come to an end.
There will be no more sunrises, no minutes, hours or days.
All the things you collected, whether treasured or forgotten, will pass to someone else.
Your wealth, fame and temporal power will shrivel to irrelevance.
It will not matter what you owned or what you were owed.
Your grudges, resentments, frustrations, and jealousies will finally disappear.
So, too, your hopes, ambitions, plans, and to-do lists will expire.
The wins and losses that once seemed so important will fade away.
It won't matter where you came from, or on what side of the tracks you lived, at the end.
It won't matter whether you were beautiful or brilliant
Even your gender and skin colour will be irrelevant.
So what will matter?
How will the value of your days be measured?
What will matter is not what you bought, but what you built; not what you got, but what you gave.
What will matter is not your success, but your significance.
What will matter is not what you learned, but what you taught.
What will matter is every act of integrity, compassion, courage or sacrifice that enriched, empowered or encouraged others to emulate your example.
What will matter is not your competence, but your character.
What will matter is not how many people you knew, but how many will feel a lasting loss when you're gone.
What will matter is not your memories, but the memories that live in those who loved you.
What will matter is how long you will be remembered, by whom and for what.
Living a life that matters doesn't happen by accident.
It's not a matter of circumstance, but of choice.
Choose to live a life that matters.

I wrote on an off in PMs to Jerry. We had a small misunderstanding sometime last fall, and I broke off talking to him. It never ever occurred to me that his life could be suddenly cut short this way. If I had had any idea, I would have written him in support.

This news has slammed me right in the gut.

He had been suffering from pain last year (and earlier). The last time I talked to him he was getting relief from treatments and was quite optimistic.

One thing I am absolutely sure about: he was a good man, an honest man, and he was an excellent tech.

Jerry was a strong, ethical, funny compassionate voice and presence wherever he spent time---here, on Pianotech, in PTG, with his clients, and no doubt with this family and friends.

He gave, big time, and he got, big time.

He's the kind of man my Dad used to look at with pleasure, turn to me, and say,
"He's one of the good ones...."

He will be missed, and grieved, and celebrated...and life will go on. We don't know our destiny, so I'm going to make the most of whatever time I've got.

Just like Jerry Groot. RIP, bubba....

Hi Diane, you're very welcome. I thought it would be appreciated, and a nice remembrance to the folks on PW that never met him in person, and to his friends here. Even though I never met Jerry personally, watching that video, I was moved as well. I had not visited his website for a long time, and was surprised and happy to see that he enjoyed one of my YouTube vids, a "White Christmas" piece.

Diane, I wanted to post that video directly to my post as you did, but did not know how. How can I do that in the future?

Jerry! My friend, you will be missed! I'm so glad we got to hang out in Grand Rapids a few years ago and have some cold ones! You were/are an icon of the pianoworld community. Here's to you and blessings to your kids and your family.

I can hear the laughter in heaven already!

One of Jerry's clients moved to my town in 2011 and brought their Yamaha G2 that Jerry had been servicing for many years. He PM'd me about the piano and said that it should be checked after the move and abrupt change in climate. I met with the owner and going through the piano I was amazed at the stability of the tuning. Also, very precise and clean action repairs and impeccable regulation. To know someone only by what their hand had done was truly inspiring. My new client had only wonderful words for Jerry and I felt like I had made a new acquaintance. I wish I had meet him because I can't get the picture of his avatar out of my head. For he is a Jolly good Fellow.

It felt like I was punched in the gut when I logged in today (the first time in months) and read about Jerry's passing.

I had considered him a friend. We first started chatting when I had helped him out with a recommendation for his upcoming hernia surgery (which I had previously experienced) and since then we regularly corresponded about all sorts of subjects.

He was by far my favorite character on this forum and his always made me laugh.
I was hoping to eventually meet him in Michigan (not far away_) and hopefully do some fishing with him.
This place definitely won't be the same without him and to be honest I simply won't like it around here as much if Jerry isn't around.

Thanks for all your help Jerry and thanks for making me feel welcome here.

When I first became interested in the piano tech business I had some great help from a local RPT examiner. At some point I mentioned I got so much out of the Pianoworld forum and he mentioned that many of the best technicians in the world post there. I don't remember the details of the conversation but for sure the name "Jerry Groot" came up.

A while ago I became so fed up with some ad-hominem attacks against my person that I posted I'd leave the forum. Immediately I got a PM from Jerry asking me to reconsider as he liked my posts, I shouldn't be so sensitive, people treated him like that too, don't take it personally, etc. I took his advise and reconsidered.

Thanks Jerry!

I have not visited PW forum for a while, and today, when I opened it, I have seen this terrible news. Mr. Groot was one of most active members of this forum, always having very useful and objective things to say. I remember that once he had criticized the ethical aspect of one act of mine, regarding a customer, which I presented here and asked members for their opinion. He was completely right about that. I am sure that he was highly moral and honest person. He was full of professional knowledge too, which was obviously visible from his posts. It is very sad that he passed so early. My condolences to his family and friends.

I was very sorry to learn of Jerry Groot's death today from the newsletter. (I recently retired from piano work and had not been keeping up with the boards.) He was a solid guy who cared about his work and kept things lively for all of us. I saw him in a class a few years ago at the PTG National in Grand Rapids but was too shy to say hello; now I regret that. My condolences to his family and friends.

I'm extremely shocked and saddened by this terrible news. Jerry was a friend, though I hadn't met him in person. A fun-loving, kind man who always brought a smile to my face. We enjoyed a few funny PM's over the years. You'll be missed Jerry, but I know you are happier and free of pain now. My condolences to the Groot family.

Oh no... just returned here after some busy months, and realize that time flies faster than one would ever wish or allow for.

I met with Jer in KC, but I got to know him here on PW. "Whatever blows your hair back" is the way to go. I will always keep that advice close to heart - dealing with pianos, and with life in general.

Truly missed.

Having been away for a while too and suffering a loss in my own family, I was truly shocked and saddened to hear this! I had no idea he had been ill. He was a great friend and colleague. He was instrumental in having me address a Chapter meeting a few years ago where I was privileged to tune the Horowitz Steinway. I was a guest in his home several times and a guest of his a dinners. I met his lovely wife, Coe and his two sons, Jer, Jr. and Joe.

He will be sorely missed!

I know what you mean, Marty. I can't tell you the number of times over the last several weeks when I've thought of, or applied, something that Jer had brought to my attention through this forum or a PM, but it has been many! His legacy is a rich one.

Here's a recording I made as a joke for Jer and posted in a Lester thread about two years ago. It was introduced as what I thought life was probably like in Jer's piano shop. The title is the only thing of the song that I changed. The lyrics are straight from the book, but much more poingnant, now...

Here's to Jer's memory!

I am very late in posting this, but I feel compelled to do so now that I've become aware of the terribly sad news. I didn't realize how long it's been since I visited this forum until I opened the Journal last week and read about Jerry's passing in April. He had a tremendous impact on my life as a technician and otherwise.

I miss his presence here, as I'm sure we all do.
