Jerold P. Weiler

Jerold P. Weiler 58, of 4610 8th Street South, Wisconsin Rapids, died Wednesday, August 1, 2007, at the VA Hospital in Madison.

Jerold P. Weiler was born on April 28, 1949, in Marshfield, to Peter and Violet (Weinfurter) Weiler. Jerold had six brothers, Richard, Charles, Ronald, Paul, Jeff, and Nick. He also had two sisters, Sue and Mary. Jerold attended St. Mary's Catholic School, Auburndale High School, and Mid-State Technical College.

Jerold was a medical corpsman serving in Vietnam from August 13, 1969, to August 12, 1971. While in Vietnam, he received the Purple Heart, the Vietnam Service Medal, and two Bronze Stars, for being wounded in action.

After serving in Vietnam, Jerold worked at The Brig, The Vintage, Sportsmen's Bar, and the Super 8 Motel. Family and friends called him "Jerry". They say Jerry was a sweet, generous person who had a great sense of humor. He always had a joke to tell and lived life to its fullest. Jerry enjoyed working with houseplants and flowers, and was a big fan of the Green Bay Packers and the Milwaukee Brewers.

Jerold married Lucille Cutler, but the marriage ended in divorce. He had two children, Travis and Cassandra.

Jerold became ill and needed to be cared for at the VA Hospital in Madison, where he later died.

Jerold was a brave man who will be remembered for his duties in Vietnam as well as his personality. He will be missed by many and never forgotten as a great member of this country who helped keep the United States and the soldiers in Vietnam healthy and safe.
