Per Jerry's wishes, there will be no services; however, memorials may be made to American Legion Post 534, P.O. Box 556, McFarland, WI 53558.

A huge thank you to the staff at the VA Hospital and to the first responders.

To Jerry's family, we are so sorry for your loss. Jerry was my first cousin and we saw each other often when we were growing up, although he was a bit older than I. Both of us worked on our grandparents (Frank & Winnie Scallon) farm near Plain, WI. My parents, Esther (Scallon) & Phil Rosien would visit with Grace and Jim Scallon and their family in Madison when they lived just off Badger Road. I have fond memories playing with Jerry, Tom, Jim and MaryLou at that home. We pray that Jerry and his family finds peace. Dan & Shirley Rosien
