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.
