Gerald H. Lawin, 77

Gerald H. “Jerry” Lawin, 77, passed away on Nov. 29, 2015, at his home in Mequon. Jerry was born in Chicago in 1938, and lived in St Paul, Minn., prior to moving to the Milwaukee area in 1983. Jerry had a long career at Bethlehem Steel prior to his retirement.

Jerry was was the father of two sons and and was preceded in death by his wife, Jean T. Lawin.

Jerry was known for his terrific sense of humor, his helpful nature and love of life. He was a lifelong Chicago Cubs fan and will surely be watching if they ever make it to the World Series, which is doubtful, according to him.

Jerry loved his sons and his grandchildren. He had many hobbies and was always ready to tell you a story, or listen to yours.

May he rest in peace.

A memorial service will be held Saturday, Dec. 5, 2015, at Schramka Funeral Home, 423 N. Main St., Thiensville, at 3 p.m. Visitation will be held from 1 p.m. until time of service.
