Jerry Michael Liddle, age 67 of Hammond, WI, passed away October 28, 2019 at Abbott-Northwestern Hospital in Minneapolis, MN. Jerry was born December 4, 1951 in Hastings, MN, to Vern and Viola (Karnick) Liddle. He graduated from River Falls High School, the Class of 1969. Jerry’s life was blessed with three children, Quinten, Michael, and Sally. Jerry worked for Cemstone, as a Ready Mix Driver for over 30 years, retiring in 2017.

Jerry had a passion for horses, and loved his time on the trails horseback riding. He enjoyed the peacefulness of the outdoors and being in the woods hunting. Most important to Jerry was his family. He was happiest when surrounded by his children, grandchildren, mother, siblings, and friends. He also delighted in a good game of euchre. Jerry had a happy, genuine, and big heart for others, always willing to help those around him. His radiant smile that could brighten up any room, will be dearly missed.
