Jerry was born to the late Rudolph and Lillian Dvorak in Wausau Wisconsin on May 30, 1939. Jerry was a graduate of Wausau High School. Jerry was an Army veteran and served in the Military Police. After his service, Jerry performed a variety of jobs from roughnecking in the oil fields of Utah, underground mining, assembling missiles in an underground bunker to name a few. Jerry's true calling came in the form of sales. For over 30 years he performed at an extremely high level and made a friend with all he came in contact with. At 58 Jerry retired and enjoyed his winters with Corky at their Bradenton Beach Florida home. He loved to laugh and make others laugh. He especially loved live music, camping, his hunting cabin, spending time with family and friends, a cold Huber Bock beer and riding is Harley.

Jerry is survived by his wife, Corky, brothers, Ken Dvorak (Fran), Jim (Maggie) Dvorak. Three children, Mike Dvorak- Belize, Dusty (Jenny) Dvorak - Schofield and Kim Kohlbeck (Bryan Berens) Rothschild.
