He took great pride in owning and operating the family business, Cosner’s Friendly Service, with his father and sons. He later worked for Export Packaging until his retirement.

Jerry was known for his natural quick wit, making people laugh, and keeping an immaculate yard. He enjoyed bowling, golf, trips with his golf buddies, but above all else spending time with his precious family. Jerry will be greatly missed by his wife, Diane; children, Greg (Donetta), Dan (Thera), and Shelly; his sisters, Sue and Kay; and his eight grandchildren.

He was preceded in death by his parents.
