Jerome “Jerry” Bowerman, age 68 of Dorr, passed away unexpectedly, Wednesday, February 6, 2019.

Jerry’s gruff exterior held a huge heart, that loved his family dearly and would do anything for his family and friends. He worked at Spartan Stores for 39 years. He was an avid reader, enjoyed travel with family, cook outs and Natty Light. He returned to school to get his diploma at the age of 52 years old. His trip to Pine Ridge Indian Reservation forever changed his life. Jerry’s passing will leave a hole in our lives but he will be forever loved and remembered. In memory of Jerry, please raise a glass!
