Gerald “Jerry” Eugene Mosley, 83, of Wanamingo, formerly of Zumbrota, Mazepa, Lake City, Twin Cities suburbs, and Jackson, died November 12, 2021, at Bay View Nursing and Rehabilitation Center, Redwing, MN.
Jerry was born on January 9, 1938, to Richard and Clara (Lev) Mosley. He was the oldest of three children. Jerry worked with his dad on the farm throughout his schooling days. After graduating from Jackson High School, he began an electrician apprenticeship with Joe Veverka’s Jackson Electric. As a master electrician, he went on to work with several companies —Medina Electric, Mendota Electric, Orrin Thompson, Langford Electric, Pepin Electric Repair, and finally for himself (Mosley Maintenance Mechanic, Residential and Commercial Wiring). Jerry took pride in having been a staff sergeant with his platoon of 35 during his National Guard training at Fort Leonard Wood, Missouri.
Jerry enjoyed biking, sailing, skiing, and social activities with the ULLR Club and other activity organizations. He did receive ULLR’s “1st CALL FOR HELP” award for his behind-the-scenes support to others, an award he cherished. Jerry shared his dry sense of humor often in conversation. He would give a little side look to see if you really caught what he had said.
