Jerry was born April 11, 1937, in Grand Rapids, to Roy and Irene (Patterson) Newman. Jerry loved living in Bear Lake, Minn. It was so peaceful and beautiful.
He enjoyed anything to do with the outdoors: hunting, fishing, trapping, camping, working in his garden and watching his birds. Some highlights in his life were his trips to the Boundary Waters with the guys and to Canada with family and friends. His children and grandchildren were the light of his life. He was a very good man and will truly be missed. Survivors include five children: Sheila (Jeff) Newman of Togo, Jeff (Melanie) Newman of Togo, Donny (Christine) Newman of Togo, April (John) Newman of Nashwauk and Terry (Jen) Newman of Hibbing; 10 grandchildren; two brothers, Dennis Newman (Marlene) of Chisholm and Jim Newman (Sandy) of Hibbing; and numerous nieces, nephews and friends.
Jerry was preceded in death by his parents, Roy and Irene; brothers, Albert "Bud" Newman and Don Newman; sisters, Alta Newman, Jean Newman, Hazel Newman and Elaine Newman.
