Gerald A. Taft Jr., 48

Gerald A. “Jerry” Taft Jr., 48, of Adell, passed away Wednesday, March 30, 2016, at Aurora St. Luke’s Medical Center in Milwaukee.

Jerry was born Dec. 15, 1967, in Tampa, Florida, the son of Gerald and Nancy (Merryfield) Taft. On Jan. 3, 2016, he was engaged to Dee Mitchell.

Jerry was a mason in Atlanta and enjoyed participating in all the activities associated with being a mason. Jerry also loved his close brotherhood with his biker friends.

Jerry was a hard one to describe; he danced to the beat of his own drum and enjoyed life in his own style. He was much loved by his family and friends and was quick to return that love and friendship to others. Jerry will be deeply missed by all who knew him.

Those Jerry leaves behind to cherish his memory include his fiancé Dee; his parents, Gerald and Nancy Taft of Quinton, Virginia; a sister, April (fiancé Dale Burke) Taft of Beechwood; and many aunts, uncles, cousins, other relatives and numerous friends.

Funeral services for Jerry will be held at 7 p.m. Tuesday, April 5, at the Miller Funeral Home in Kewaskum. The family will greet relatives and friends from 4 p.m. until the time of service Tuesday at the funeral home.

The Myrhum Patten Miller and Kietzer Funeral Homes have been entrusted with Jerry’s arrangements. Additional information and guestbook may be found at
