Gerald J. “Jerry” Moon, age 77, of Omro, died peacefully at home surrounded by the love of his family, early Monday morning, July 21, 2008. Jerry was born October 8, 1930, in Oshkosh, the son of Nathan Jess and Erna Hattie Moon. He had attended school in Oshkosh, and later joined and served in the U.S. Army, being discharged in 1952 as a Corporal. Jerry married Joan Marie Weber on February 14, 1953 in Oshkosh. This union was blessed with five children. Jerry was an avid outdoorsman and sportsman who enjoyed fishing and playing golf. In his younger years, he was very good at playing baseball. He was an passionate Brewers Fan and always enjoyed watching his grandchildren play sports. Jerry and his wife always cherished the time they spent together dancing. Family was important to Jerry and he always enjoyed the Moon Family Greater Open which was a golf tournament and family reunion. He had worked at and retired from Rockwell International in Oshkosh. Jerry was truly the best husband and best dad ever!
