Jerry Treiber, DZ-5591, of the Wisconsin Garrison passed away on the 25th of December, 2013. Well known for his creativity and kindness, Jerry labored tirelessly to contribute to the joy and welfare of others.
Less than six months ago, Jerry wrote a short message about Why We Do What We Do as members of the 501st and summed it up by saying, "All I can think is that when I die, I don’t want people to mourn me… I want them to celebrate my life. I want to know that I made an impact. That I left a legacy that mattered, of kindness, hope and inspiration…" Jerry shall be remembered as a generous soul, selfless in his being, and a bright light to every gathering and every individual he touched.
It is with great pride that we now enter his name into the 501st’s Hall of Eternal Legionnaires.
Jerry is survived by his wife Sherry and children Jessica, Ryan, and Tiffany. If you wish to assist his family, please consider contributing to this memorial fund: http://bit.ly/1il7M28
