Gerard (Jerry) Carl Byrne
On December 24th, 2021, Gerard (Jerry) Carl Byrne was sent to heaven and his family and friends will be forever grateful for the time they had with him. Although he is no longer with us physically, the memories he created will be forever remembered.
Jerry lived his life fully and enjoyed spending time with his family and friends. “Work hard and Play Hard” was a saying of his. Jerry worked 42 years at Copper and Brass Sales in Detroit as an Outside Salesman before retiring. Jerry moved his family to Fowlerville from Detroit in 1978 where they still reside. Jerry and his wife Lori have spent the last 17 years as snowbirds in Hudson, Florida where many fabulous friends and memories were made.
He was born on 05-14-1941 to Andrew and Jeanette (Bickford) Byrne in Detroit, Michigan. On 02-01-1964 Jerry married the love of his life Lorraine (Zielinski) Byrne, and they were married for 57 years. Three loving sons Brian (Sharyl), Kevin, and Randy mourn the loss of their very loving father along with 9 grandchildren and 3 great- grandchildren who will forever remember their grandpa. Jerry was also survived by two loving sisters Cheryl (Greg) and Mary (Ron), who truly loved their big brother. Several loving nephew, nieces, cousins, and longtime friends will forever remember him.
Cremation has taken place and family will have a celebration of life later at St Agnes Catholic Church in Fowlerville, Michigan.
