Retired Rock Hill firefighter, barbecue chef, remembered as good guy

"Can't" and "no" weren't words often found in Jerry Gardner's vocabulary. The long-time professional firefighter and volunteer fire chief was prone to saying "yes" as much as he could – often coupling it with a plate of his "delicious" barbecue, family and friends say.
