Obituary for Jerry Dale Foss

Jerry Dale Foss, a resident of Highland, passed away on August 3, 2012 after a courageous battle with a long illness. He was 66 years old.

Born on June 28, 1946 in Pulaski, Missouri, Jerry was the only child of Robert F. Foss and Bertie R. Weitzel. Jerry moved to Michigan with his family when he was a young boy, joined the U.S. Marines in 1966 and was proud to serve his country in Vietnam. Upon returning home, he married Mary Burrow and they raised three boys in Highland, Michigan. Jerry loved life�s simple pleasures; he loved his family, the outdoors and loved to visit casinos. As an avid outdoorsman, Jerry lived to hunt, fish and travel to the family cabin on Houghton Lake.

He was devoted to his family and loved his grandchildren more than life itself. He is survived by his beloved wife of 42 years, Mary (Burrow) Foss; dear sons, Brian Foss, Timothy (Cheri) Foss, Joel (Kellie) Foss; grandchildren, Lauren, Tyler, Brandi and Aaron Foss; loving mother, Bertie Weitzel as well as extended family, many friends and fellow Marines who join the family in mourning the loss of Jerry while giving thanks for his life among them.

A Funeral Service will be held at Lynch & Sons Funeral Home, Milford on Tuesday, August 7 at 10 AM. Burial Great Lakes National Cemetery, Holly. Friends may visit Monday, August 6 from 3-8 PM. In lieu of flowers, memorial contributions may be made in his name to Disabled Veterans of America.
