Jerry was born March 21, 1945, in Dowagiac, to Roger and June (Nelson) Lundy. He graduated from Dowagiac High School in 1963 where he played football and was known as “The Ram” and received the Leading Offensive Player in 1962. He also was a great wrestler and earned the award of Best Wrestler in 1963. He continued to support local wrestling programs his entire life. On March 15, 1980, he married the love of his life, Sally Schoff, in Dowagiac.

Jerry worked as a supervisor for more than 27 years at Sunstrand, in Dowagiac. He and his wife, Sally, worked hard to fulfill their lifelong dream of owning and operating their own fishing and hunting camp in Canada that they owned for 14 years. It was there that they developed long-lasting friendships with people throughout the world.

Jerry was an avid hunter and fisherman and was passionate about wildlife and loved to travel. His greatest joy was being in Canada or Alaska because of his love of wilderness and nature. Jerry loved his wife and family more than anything and will be greatly missed.

Jerry is survived by his loving wife, Sally Lundy; daughters, Jodie (Craig) Allen, Tracie (John) Closson and Heather (Eric Bowman) Lundy; grandchildren, Deven, Camden and Ashten Allen, Kayley and Cody Closson, Carly Ann Prak and Isabella Osborne; and brother, Mickie Lundy.
