Jerry was 76 years of age at the time of his death. He is the beloved husband of the late Helen. Jerry is the loving father of Debbie (David) Klump, Dawn (Brett) Price, and Diane (Cris) Castiglione; and the adored grandfather of 8 and great grandfather of 7. Because Jerry and Helen both hailed from West Branch and still have cherished family there, the family is planning two segments of life celebration and farewell: In Livonia, MI: The family will receive friends on Monday, January 12th from 2 to 8 p.m. Jerry will be in-state on Tuesday morning, January 13th for final visiting at 10:30 a.m. at the St. Robert Bellarmine Catholic Church located at the corner of W. Chicago and Inkster, 27101 W. Chicago in Redford. This final visiting period will conclude with the Mass of Christian Burial at 11 a.m. In West Branch, MI: The family will receive friends at the Steuernol & McLaren Funeral Home in West Branch on Wednesday, January 14th from 2 p.m. until the time of a committal service at 6 p.m. Burial will take place, in the Spring, at the St. Joseph Cemetery. Jerry will be laid to rest beside Helen. Please share a thought or memory.
