Jerry will be fondly missed by his wife, Karen, and their children, Shari and Steve Hutar, John and Jill Mattson, Joe and Sarah Mattson and Jim Mattson, and his dear grandchildren, Ryan, Jared, Rachel, Annikka, Maija, and Wyatt. Also missing him will be his sisters, Jane Lindgren, Shirley and Floyd Carlson, and Betty and Larry Isaacson and many other friends and relatives. Jerry loved hunting and fishing and I'm sure his last conversations on this earth were about those very same subjects. We will all miss you, Jerry. You were a big part of this community and your family!
