Gerald (Jerry) was a jack of all trades, and a master of none. In his passing there will surely be many lawn mowers and snow blowers that will go unrepaired.

He will be deeply loved and missed by many.
Survived by his Daughter Faye Hutsell, Rockford, Il., Grandson Edward Hutsell, Rockford, Il., and too many Beloved family members and friends to be named.
Preceded in death by his loving wife Linda Joyce, In-Laws Robert “Jack” and Doris Karhoff, his Parents, along with Brothers: Billy, Thomas, and Danny. Sister: Christine and a Nephew Danny Ray.
