Gerald M. "Jerry" Thibaudeau, age 83, a lifelong resident of Green Bay, passed away peacefully at his home, Thursday, April 22, 2021. He was born April 18, 1938 in Green Bay, son of the late Milton and Mildred (Gay) Thibaudeau.
Jerry was united in marriage to Judy Schmidt, October 8, 1966 and they shared 54 loving years of marriage. He enlisted in the US Army and served briefly between conflicts, after which he served in the Army Reserves for 10 proud years. Jerry drove bus for Lamers, retiring after many years of employment.
First and foremost, Jerry was a devoted family man. He was an avid fan of Polka music and loved to play cards. Time spent with his family was what he cherished most of all. He especially enjoyed spending time with his granddaughters laughing, joking, taking selfies and just plain being goofy!
