Gerald V. Quinn "Jerry"
age 78, of Washington Twp. passed away on Monday, March 16, 2020 at his residence. Jerry was born in Pittsburgh on August 1, 1941 to the late Margaret (Myers) and Walter Quinn. He graduated from St. Thomas High School in Braddock in 1959. Jerry served his country in the United States Navy, in Vietnam on the Summitt County LST-1146. After leaving the Navy in 1969, he went on to a more peaceful life of vegetable gardening, enjoying the outdoors with hunting and fishing, and teaching his son how to do all of these things until his health problems made those activities too difficult. In his last several years, he took up beekeeping and then tending to Monarch Butterflies to keep the species surviving. He will be missed by his wife, Anna (Vangrin), son, Jon, his Lab, Buddy who will not have him to boss around, his sisters, Marney, Chris, Kathy and brother, Fred, along with many nieces and nephews. He is preceded in death by his sister, Mandy Kaufman and brother, Patrick Quinn. Jerry's wishes were to be cremated without any visitation or services.
