Our father was the kindest, sweetest human, with the biggest heart ever put on this Earth. He will always be remembered for the family vacations and great advice he gave everyone. He will be deeply missed. Additionally, he loved to dance with our mother and was a great role model to all five of us where he will remain in our hearts forever.

He is survived by his children, Cindy (Cary) Livingston, Sandy (Gary) Hansen, Suzy (Rich) Starzec, Wendy Jerard, and Rick (Tracey Prate) Jerard; grandchildren, Michael, Jacob (Jennifer), Nicholas, Gregory (Rachel), Christopher, Richard, Robert, Ryne, Kaitlyn and Dylan; great-grandson, Brady; and his brother, LeRoy Jarzembowski.
