Jerry Millard, formerly of Edgerton, WI passed away on January 15, 2024 at Alden Estates in Jefferson, WI. Jerry was the eldest child and was born on September 2, 1940, to Clinton and Marie Millard. They farmed on the shores of Crystal Lake near Lodi, WI. He graduated from Lodi High School and enlisted in the US Army at the age of 17.

He worked throughout Wisconsin and the upper Midwest building silos for the Madison Silo Company. He worked on commercial construction jobs in North Dakota and Nevada, finally returning to Wisconsin as a self-employed carpenter.

Jerry is survived by his son Kurt (Joan) Millard of Cross Plains, his grandsons, Zachary and Zeke Millard, his sisters, Judy Read and Jean Buchanan of Edgerton.

He was predeceased by his parents, a brother, Gary Millard, and his son Todd Millard.

Jerry was grateful for the care he received at the Madison VA, and especially the nurses and staff from Rainbow Hospice and Alden Estates.

He will be missed by many, but especially by his close friends, Don Bush, Jeff Beery and Roy Troutman.
