Gerald "Jerry" Pigeon

February 4, 1935 — February 12, 2019

Gerald J. “Jerry” Pigeon, 84, Green Bay, passed away Feb. 12, 2019, at a local nursing home. Born on February 4, 1935, in Green Bay, he is the son of the late Walter and Marian (Kocha) Pigeon. Jerry graduated from Luxemburg High School, Class of ’52. In 1955, he enlisted in the U.S. Army and spent over one year in Germany. Jerry married Geraldine Barrette, his high school sweetheart, on October 15, 1955, and the couple recently celebrated their 63rd wedding anniversary. They spent their first year of married life in Germany where they met many wonderful Army buddies and their wives. Jerry was honorably discharged in 1957. One week after his discharge, he was hired by Fort Howard Paper Co. and retired in 1994 after 37 years of faithful service. After retirement, Jerry and Geraldine spent 16 years in Mesa, AZ. Jerry spent his time playing various card games and golfing and even had a hole-in-one in 2001. The couple returned to Green Bay in 2011. Jerry will also be remembered as an avid fan of both the Cubs and the Packers. Jerry was a Packer season ticket holder for many years and was at the historic “Ice Bowl”.
