Gerald Proefrock 86, of Cedarburg, WI, passed away on February 18, 2021. peacefully at his home in Bonita Springs, FL with his children by his side. Jerry “Moses” was born in Mequon, WI to Edwin & Dora (Paske) Proefrock. He grew up with 3 brothers and 1 sister in Ozaukee county. He met the love of his life and high school sweetheart, Darlene Roeglin, and they married in 1953.

Jerry and Darlene made their home in Cedarburg and started their family, blessed with children Mary Richter (Michael), Steven Proefrock (Terry), Russell Proefrock (Kitt), and Julie Thorn (Gregory). Being a kind and dependable father was the most important role for Jerry and he certainly did not disappoint when it came to wholeheartedly loving his family. To support his family, Jerry spent his entire career as an auto mechanic working for Oswald’s Service Station in Cedarburg before retiring in the early 1990’s.

Jerry enjoyed so many things in life, including playing cards, Rummikub, parties with friends, camping with family and friends, making the big campfire breakfast, watching western movies, reading mystery novels, traveling in their motorhome on bowling trips, attending his grandchildren’s (and great grandchildren’s) sporting events, but his favorite was probably fishing… and a good Manhattan!

In addition to his children, Jerry is survived by his brother Eugene Proefrock, sister Carol Lentz, and sisters in law Carol Flitsch & Mitzi Proefrock, 18 Grandchildren, 26 Great Grandchildren & 3 Great-Great Grandchildren, nephews, nieces, cousins and many life-long friends.

He was preceded in passing by his parents, wife, brothers Donald & Harvey Proefrock, sisters in law Beverly & Jeannie Proefrock, Margaret Roeglin and brothers in law Victor Lentz, Eugene Flitsch & Wayne Roeglin, along with other family and friends who together with the Lord welcomed him home.

A memorial service will be held in Wisconsin in the early summer of 2021 for family and close friends. Specific information will be announced when finalized.
