Jerry was born and raised in Forest Lake. He was active in the family business, until he and Joyce started their own business. He was a happy-go- lucky social man who always greeted you with a smile and a joke. Jerry enjoyed working with his hands, building things and he loved animals, demonstrating that by donating the Northwoods Humane Society land. He was also active with the Forest Lake Masonic Lodge #344 and was a Shriner. Jerry’s generosity continued after his death, as he chose to donate his body to the University of Minnesota’s Anatomy Bequest Program.
