Jerry was born in Gary, Indiana to Luzerne and Mildred Fairchild on May 3, 1931. He was raised in Omaha and Lincoln, Nebraska. He graduated from Northeast High School and spent his first year of college in Lincoln and then moved to Arizona. He received his Bachelor's at Arizona State. He
taught for a couple of years in Arizona and then moved to Fontana, where he taught for several years and spent some time in school administration. He received his Master's at Cal State Los Angeles and later his Doctorate at UCLA. During this time, he met and married Katherine Nicholson who had two children. After his teaching career, he sold real estate for 8 years. After that, he bought a franchise of the Reading Game which turned in Brittanica Learning Center. When that was over, he bought a franchise of Sylvan Learning Center. He always felt that was the best 14 years of his career. He got involved in Barbershop Quartet singing and formed a quartet while in college in Arizona. The fraternity quartet won a contest on the campus. While in California, he directed the Riverside Citrus Belters Chorus. He took them to 3 District Championships and 3 international 5th place medals. During his years in Barbershop, he sang in many quartets. In 1961, he met Joe Daniels, who had just moved out from New York. Jerry was singing in the Sidewinders quartet at the time and Joe joined to sing the lead. They sang together with Jerry singing the Tenor. They went on to win the international contest in 1964. After the Sidewinders retired, they went on to sing with the R.S.V.P. quartet for several years. After they retired, Jerry sang in several other quartets. Jerry was very involved in his Church and in the community. After Joe's passing and Katerine's death, Jerry married Joe's widow, Maureen. They had known each other for many years. Jerry is survived by his wife Maureen, his children, Richard Nicholson (Selma), Diana Heemstra (John), Suzanne Goebel (Steve), Kathleen Brenneman (Bill), Joseph Daniels (Becky),Scott Daniels (Maureen), 17 grandchildren, and 11 great-grandchildren.
