Gerald E. “Jerry” Asplund Sr., 84, loving husband of 62 years of Marion Shatas Asplund, died on March 16, 2020 at home after a lengthy illness.

Sending my condolences on the passing of your Dad. Your Dad was a sharp guy and I remember many fun times at millstone, outings, retirement parties. He sure knew how to enjoy life. I hope your fond memories of better days soon replaces the sorrow you feel today. May He Rest In Peace!
Sincerely, Tom Carew
