Thank you Dad for everything you've given us. From our great family to the many memorable times and holidays we spent together. Most of all I'll miss you just checking up on me even long after I moved out, or you and Mom just driving by to wave at me. Maybe one day we'll go fishing together again.

As a very close friend of Gerald's son, Jerry, I had an occasion to meet him and Barbara once at their home in Winona. I treasure the memory. I know this is a special family. My deepest condolences to all who feel the loss.

Jerry A. Modjeski February 7, 2017

My Dad had osteomyelitis as a child. It meant missing school, home, friends and family during long stays at St. Paul's Gillette Hospital. He eventually had a operation which shortened one leg, requiring wearing a oversize built up sole, walking with a limp (he had a ball bearing installed in his hip, that he could feel during certain weather). That he overcame that obstacle and and walked all his life is a miracle. Near the end I started calling him IRON MAN. Love ya, Dad. Your son, Jerry (Junior)

Jerry always smiled and waved when he'd see us outside, and was always so nice to talk to. I'm sorry we didn't have more time! He will surely be missed! Our thoughts are with all of his family! Barb... if you need anything, we are here!!
Your neighbors, The Wobig's

To Jerry's wife and children, I used to wait on your husband and father at Shortys Restaurant 20 years ago and for about 20 years. He was always kind and nice and friendly and I always enjoyed waiting on the two or them. Peace with you all and my sympathy to all of the family especially Barb. Mary Ann Gierok (former waitress)
