Jerome (Jerry) Gordon Laumann passed away Sunday, September 13, 2020 surrounded by his family.Jerry was born September 11, 1941 in Grand Rapids, Minnesota to Gordon and Isabelle Laumann. He grew up in Deer River, Minnesota enjoying fishing and hunting in the “Land of 10,000 Lakes”. In September 1959, Jerry joined the Army and proudly served his country. His time in the service was spent mainly in Germany, and he was honorably discharged. On October 29, 1962, Jerry married Helen Chmielewski. Together they raised a family of three children: Dianna, Steve, and Susan. After living in Minnesota and Colorado, they made their home in Sheridan, Wyoming in 1969. Jerry and Helen later divorced. Jerry worked at various jobs early on but spent most of his life working as a diesel mechanic for Metz Beverage Company before retiring.Jerry’s greatest passions in life were his family, his dogs, and the outdoors. He had quite the adventures and many stories to tell (although some “tall”). Jerry’s love for the outdoors lasted his lifetime through. Much to his children’s dismay, Jerry could sit on the same rock along the river bank for an entire afternoon contently waiting for the perfect catch. Likewise, he could wait from dawn to dusk on a null for a trophy deer to appear. His patience was almost always rewarded. Jerry was an amazing marksman. Other hobbies included camping in the Big Horn Mountains (his favorite saying while camping was “It doesn’t get any better than this”), tying flies, reloading ammo, racing cars, riding his Harley motorcycle, and of course, watching John Wayne movies, Gunsmoke and Bonanza.Jerry was preceded in death by his father, mother, infant brother William Laumann, step-father Harold Chandler, and grandson Micheal Horsley. He was also preceded in death by his beloved dog, Zeus. He is survived by his daughter Dianna Laumann-Horsley, son Steve Laumann, daughter Susan Conrad (Andrew), seven grandchildren: Jobe Horsley (Amber), Tabitha Tescher (Kyle), Nathan Horsley, Chloe Laumann, Carly Laumann, Olivia Conrad and Julia Conrad, and seven great-grandchildren.

Pastor Aaron Hughes will be officiating and there will be a reception to follow outdoors at Kane Funeral Home.Kane Funeral Home has been entrusted with local arrangements.
