Jerry Knutson, 79, passed away suddenly on Aug. 15, 2013.

He was born Dec. 8, 1933, to Herbert and Ida Knutson in Antigo, Wis.

At the age of 22, Jerry entered the U.S. Army and was stationed in Germany, where he served with the 3rd Armored Calvary Regiment.

When he returned home, he entered the construction field and could usually be found balancing on a steel beam, five stories up!

After he retired, he moved to Eagle River and spent his time hunting, fishing, going to the casino and meeting with friends at his second home, Trig’s Food store.

Jerry leaves behind two daughters, Debbie (Bruce) Micoley of Suring, Wis., Darlene (Greg) King of Orlando, Fla.; son, David Knutson of Mar­quette, Mich.; 12 grandkids; 20 great-grandkids; and one great-great-granddaughter.

He also will be missed by his special friend, Jess Couillard of Eagle River.

Plans are in the works for a special memorial.

A luncheon in Jerry’s honor will be held at noon on Saturday, Aug. 31, 2013, at Kalmar Senior Center in Eagle River.

Gaffney-Busha Funeral Home is serving the family. Online condolences may be expressed at
