Gerard "Jerry" Hack

Alton | Friday, January 15 2010

Gerard "Jerry" Hack, 54, died at 8:10 p.m. Friday, January 15, 2010 at his home in Alton. Born February 4, 1955 in Alton, he was the son of the late Herbert and Margaret (Maher) Hack.

The past 15 years he worked as a furniture tech for Kloss Furniture / Furniture Brands out of Highland IL and prior to that he worked for Gilberts Carriage House of Alton. On July 6, 1974 at St. Ambrose Catholic Church, he married Terri (Smith) Hack and she survives.

A big part of his life was playing baseball and fast pitch softball. His smile, quick wit, jokes and his knowledge of useless information was something that he shared with everyone he met.
