Jerry was born April 10th,1950 in Grand Rapids MI to Gerald and Kathryn Geers and grew up in Kent City, MI.

He went to work for B&B Beer Distributing as a delivery driver and spent many years with the company. You could always find Jerry be-bopping around on his golf cart or in the barn working on things that needed to be fixed. Jerry enjoyed being surrounded by his family playing ladder ball, croquet, telling stories, and cooking out to eat as a family. Jerry would spend quiet nights sitting with Lonne on the deck and enjoyed looking at their beautiful land and enjoying each other’s company. Jerry loved his children and his grandchildren deeply. Jerry was preceded in death by his parents, Gerald and Kathryn Geers; sister, Bonnie Robinson. He is survived by his wife of 48 years, Lonne; children, Jason (Jamie)Geers, Justin (Heather)Geers, and Melody (Shaun) Precious; grandchildren, Aj, Kaitlin, Jared, Austin, Colt, Garrett and Jentri; his sister, Faith (Rick) VanZalen; brother, Rodger (Dawn) Geers; brother in law, Ed Robinson; several in laws, nieces and nephews. As Jerry had wished cremation has taken place and a memory of his life service will be held at a time when life returns to normal.
