Jerry passed away peacefully with family by his side at his Walter Lane home in Saskatoon on April 22, 2021 after a short illness. Jerry lived on the farm near Hendon along with his parents, Alex and Lena, his brother Mervin and his sister Dianne. He attended school in Wadena from ages 6 to 18. He was one of the original students to attend the first special needs classroom at the Wadena Elementary School. After he reached the age of 18, Jerry went to Yorkton for two years where he boarded in a private home and worked in light industry in the sheltered workshop. In 1975 he moved to Wadena where he was one of the original people to work at Mallard Industries when it opened and continued to work there for 41 years. He boarded in Wadena and would go home to the farm on weekends. Once his parents moved to town, he lived with them until their passing. Jerry then lived with his sister Dianne until 2016. In 2016 he moved into Aylesbury group home in Wadena followed by a move to Humboldt long term care and then transferred in 2017 to Pleasant View Care Home. In March 2018, he moved to his forever home in Saskatoon at Walter Lane on a farm on Clarence Ave. Here he enjoyed immense love and care provided by the staff. He enjoyed riding his bike and golf cart and all the animals at the farm. Jerry loved people, rough riders, music, the Dixielanders, playing guitar, riding his bike, working at Mallard Industries, driving the golf cart, bowling, buying treats, pop, “burger and fries”, family, kids, and being a social butterfly. People knew Jerry wherever he went, both near and far. It has been said by people of Wadena that Jerry was one of the staples of the town as he could be seen everywhere riding his bike and checking things out. Jerry was always politically correct in his answers and had many catchy sayings such as “I got it”, “something good”, “up to you”, “lucky guy”, “maybe”, “everyday”, “you hear that”, “you got that right” and “nah”. He always tried to be very ambiguous with his answers so he could never be pinned down to taking sides. Jerry was predeceased by his parents Alex and Lena Kryzanowski and his great nephew Travis Hanson. He leaves to mourn his passing: his brother Mervin (Arleen) Kryzanowski of Wadena and his sister Dianne (Neil) Gradin of Wadena; his 7 nieces, Michelle (Eldon) Van Den Bossche, Sharlene (Darren) Hanson, Karol (Harold) Narfason, Keri (Elden)Helberg, Barbara (Vern) Luther, Carla Gradin (DJ Moran), Christie Gradin (Heath Edwards), and one nephew, Jamie (Christine) Gradin; 18 great nieces and nephews, Amber (Lyle) Dosch, Joshua (Sarah) Van Den Bossche, Kaleb (Michelle) Van Den Bossche, Dylan (Richelle) Hanson, Tyrell (Danilee) Hanson, Karter Narfason, Kea Narfason, Alexis Helberg, Griffen Helberg, Aizlee Helberg, Jadyn Luther, Blake Luther, Jordyn Luther, Jesse Gradin, Austin Gradin, Kalen Gradin, and Presley Gradin; and 9 great-great nieces and nephews, Jackson & Cole Dosch, McKenna, Samuel & Eva Van Den Bossche, Ella Van Den Bossche, Nevaeh, Brynlee, Wyatt & Emersyn Hanson, and Taylyn Hanson. Jerry's family and friends will miss his contageious laughter that came from the bottom of his toes, his innocence and honesty, and his heartfelt hugs and him sneaking a chumchee on your cheek. Jerry has left an imprint on everyone's hearts that will be cherished by his family and many friends forever.
