Meet our Riverlorian: Q and A with Jerry Hay

A Salute To America

What did you do yesterday? If you’re like many Americans, you had the day off and you spent it with friends and family. Perhaps you went to a baseball game. You might have enjoyed a picnic with all the trimmings: hot dogs, corn on the cob, barbeque ribs, potato salad, coleslaw and apple pie. Perhaps you took advantage of the many Memorial Day sales and spent the day shopping. No matter what you did, we hope that you took a few moments to remember the reason for the holiday.

I lost my left leg in 2010 due to an aneurysm in the back of the knee and the right leg in 2014 for the same reason. I was 87 in January 2017, but I still move around fairly well playing wheelchair tennis in San Diego Tuesday evenings and often kayaking in San Diego’s Mission Bay 6-9 miles in one of the four wooden kayaks that I built.
