Jerry Korhonen

Jerry Korhonen, age 83, quietly passed away on December 26, 2019 after a recent injury, ending his pain.
He was born on November 8, 1936 to the late Walter and Leelah (Gierke) Korhonen.
Jerry is survived by his children, Kevin, Karen and Kerry; several grandchildren and great-grandchildren; his life partner of 21 years, Barbara Norton and her 7 children who welcomed him into their hearts and family; his brother and best friend Larry (Kristine); his sisters, Joanne Howes and Carol Kolka.
Jerry was a strong advocate for adoption of rescue animals, having adopted several himself. He also worked tirelessly to make sure that all veterans had a flag on their graves at the local cemetery for many years.
Cremation has taken place and a Celebration of Life will occur later in the spring.
In Lieu of flowers, donations to the Crawford County Animal Shelter would be appreciated.
