May 15, 1941 ~ December 24, 2021 (age 80)


Gerard (Jerry) Carl Byrne


On December 24th, 2021, Gerard (Jerry) Carl Byrne was sent to heaven and his family

and friends will be forever grateful for the time they had with him. Although he is no

longer with us physically the memories he created will be forever remembered. Jerry

lived his life fully and enjoyed spending time with his family and friends. Work hard and

Play Hard was a saying of his. Jerry worked 42 years at Copper and Brass Sales in

Detroit as an Outside Salesman before retiring. Jerry moved his family to Fowlerville

from Detroit in 1978 where they still reside. Jerry and his wife Lori have spent the last

17 years as snowbirds in Hudson Florida where many fabulous friends and memories

were made.  He was born on 05-14-1941 to Andrew and Jeanette (Bickford) Byrne in Detroit

Michigan. On 02-01-1964 Jerry married the love of his life Lorraine (Zielinski) Byrne,

and they were married for 57 years. Three loving sons Brian (Sharyl), Kevin, and Randy

mourn the loss of their very loving father along with 9 Grandchildren and 3 Great

Grandchildren who will forever remember their grandpa. Jerry was also survived by two

loving sisters Cheryl (Greg) and Mary (Ron), who truly loved their big brother. Several

loving nephew, nieces, cousins, and longtime friends will forever remember him.

Cremation has taken place and family will have a celebration of life later at St Agnes

Catholic Church in Fowlerville Michigan.
