Jerold C. Kirchner

Jerold C. Kirchner, age 87, of Marathon, NY, entered through Heaven’s Gates on August 27, 2022. 

 

He was predeceased by his parents Norman and Ruth Kirchner; children Norman, Jody, and Cheryl Kirchner.

 

He is survived by his loving wife of 65 years, Patricia Kirchner; sister Norma (James) Halderson; children Rosemarie (Barry) Fralick and Lisa Kirchner (Jim Boughton); several grandchildren; and great-grandchildren Carson, Willoe, Paisley, Finnian, and Jameson.

 

After attending Marathon High School he enlisted into the United States Army where he served his country proudly for two years.  Afterwards he took over the family business, Advanced Systems in Marathon.  After selling the business, he became a school bus driver for over 30 years, retiring from the Marathon Central School District. 

 

Jerold was a lifetime member of the Marathon Fire Department and American Legion.  He enjoyed bowling and collecting Hess trucks during the holidays.  You would often find Jerry sitting on the front porch or walking to the post office in town.  He found enjoyment spending time with his family, especially his grandchildren and great-grandchildren. 

 

Jerry’s family would like to thank Dr. Cori Mikloucich and the staff at Mercy House for all of their care.

 

His family will receive friends at The Marathon Memorial Chapel, 4071 State Route 221, Marathon on Friday September 2, 2022 from 11:00am-Noon with a memorial service at Noon.  Burial will follow at the Marathon Cemetery.  In lieu of flowers kindly consider memorial donations to Mercy House of the Southern Tier.

Did Jerry drive for SUNY? I believe he took our lacrosse team for a Spring Break trip in the early 80’s.
I remember him being a kind , tolerant and gentle person. Our team loved Jerry!
