Obituary for Gerard James Montgomery


Gerard James “Jerry” Montgomery was born November 18, 1932 in Chicago, IL. He was a graduate of St. George High School in Evanston, IL and St. Mary’s College in Winona, MN. After graduation from college in 1954, Jerry married the love of his life, Joanne (nee Thulis), served two years in the United States Army, and began raising a family.

Jerry spent the bulk of his career in broadcasting, first in sales and then as general manager of television stations in Green Bay, WI; Erie, PA and Joplin, MO. Upon retirement, Jerry and Joanne enjoyed time in Naples, FL and Loudon, TN. Jerry was an avid golfer who also enjoyed spending time with his family, traveling, and following the Green Bay Packers. He was a gentle and kind man with a positive attitude and enormous gratitude for the blessings in his life, especially his wife and family.

Jerry passed away on Friday, September 22, 2017 after two years of declining health. He will be missed beyond measure by his wife Joanne and their four children: James Montgomery (Karen McDiarmid), Kathleen (Rick) White, Jeanne (Tom) Satagaj and Anne (Clay) Perfall; their twelve grandchildren: Meaghan, Sean, James and Maura Montgomery; Kait (Phil) Baylor, Claire White and Lisa (Tom) Finan; David and Anna Satagaj; and Cal, Evelyn and Adrienne Perfall; and their first great-grandchild Howard “Hobey" Baylor.
