Jerome "Jerry"  F.

  • Visitation, Sunday November 27, 2022 at the Funeral Home, 6615 W. Oklahoma Ave. from 3-7pm

Brantner, Jerome F. “Jerry”
Born to Eternal Life on Monday, November 21, 2022, at the age of 92. Beloved husband of Shirley for 66 years. Loving dad of RoseMarie (the late Wayne) Mueller, our Angel Sharon Kay, Kay, and Mary. Dear grandpa of Brian (Megan) Mueller, Kristine (Kyle) Kison, Jennifer (Matt) Jentink, Kevin Mueller (Taylor Kalmus), and Kari Oettinger (Jake Daniels). Cherished great grandpa of Hannah Jentink, Kyle Jentink, Alan Mueller, Cory Kison, and Lyla Kison. Also survived by nieces, nephews, other relatives, and many friends. Preceded in death by his parents Adolph and Elsie Brantner, his siblings, Stella, Pauline, Bernice, Adolph “Shorty”, Edith, and Don.

Jerry loved his family, in his younger years he enjoyed volunteering with the Girl Scouts of America, he was a crossing guard and could be found behind the bar serving up a cold beer. He volunteered at the church festival, dressing up as a clown and handing out candy to the kids. Jerry loved gardening, traveling to all 50 states and many foreign countries with Shirley, on a Friday or Saturday night you might find them at the Panther Arena cheering on the Milwaukee Admirals, but he was also an avid Packer, Brewers, and Milwaukee Bucks fan. He enjoyed Sunday afternoons at the Fireside Theater and weeknights watching Wheel of Fortune and Jeopardy. Shake of the day, Arby’s roast beef sandwiches, angel food cake, chocolate, a cold beer, his Father’s Day t-shirt, a mean game of Yahtzee, bowling, rummage sales, telling jokes, opening presents, and family/yard parties were some of his favorite things. Jerry’s key chain collection is something to be admired. He will be deeply missed.

Visitation to be held on Sunday November 27th, 2022, at the FUNERAL HOME from 3-7pm. Private family interment Mt. Olivet Cemetery.

6615 W. Oklahoma Ave.

    Shirley, Mary, I’m so sorry for your loss. I remember them being on tour, came through Richmond, In. I went there and met up with them. We had dinner together. What great memories. I remember going to the bowling alley to their I believe their Wedding Anniversary, or maybe a Birthday Party. You all are in my thoughts and prayers. Love You.

    Jerry will be greatly missed. On Sundays he would bring in his weeks worth of jokes of day calendar and just beam as he read them to me. He didn’t smile all the time but when he did he lit up. Sending our love and prayers to Shirley and family
