Jerry was born Oct. 27, 1957 in Scottsbluff to Claire Francis and Delores Clara (Krance) Rotherham. He and his soul mate Mary Reed met here and were married Feb. 18, 1978. Together they made a home for their sons Jeremy and Corey. Jerry was a mechanic for Scotts Bluff County for 25 plus years and spent his spare time working on cars at home. He always had an open garage door for someone in need.
After West Nile affected his health Jerry was forced to slow down and stopped working as much. He spent the last five years at a job he loved at the Scotts Bluff Regional Airport. He also found more time to travel with his wife and enjoy his sons and grandkids.
A generous and loving husband, father and grandfather; he will always live in our hearts and his spirit will forever fly free. Jerry did things his way, with a laugh and a smile.
His family includes his wife: Mary; son: Jeremy; son: Corey and new bride Elisia; siblings: Dave and wife Peggy, Shirley and husband Ron Keller, Clarence and wife Lynda, Tom, Cindy and husband Don Rogers, Linda, Harold and Dan; grandkids: Cameron, Brittney, Ilea, and Corey Jr.; and extended family of many.
He was preceded in death by his parents.
