Gerald F. House was born Dec.23 1941 in Atlantic City, NJ and passed away at his daughter’s home in Port Republic on May 3, 2021 surrounded by his loving family. Jerry is survived by the love of his life, BettyLou (Long), to whom he was married for 59 wonderful years; his daughter, Victoria (David); son-in-law, Ralph Robinson; and sister, Barbara Bitetti. He is also survived by 5 grandchildren and 8 great grandchildren. Jerry is pre-deceased by his parents, Theodore and Kathleen House; his brother, Ted; and his beloved daughter, Bonnie, stolen from his loving arms at the age of 40. Jerry graduated from Pleasantville High School in 1959 and was a proud member of the Bones Fraternity. Jerry started his career with Western Electric and worked for 42 years until he retired from Lucent Technologies. Jerry spared no expense in living a full life with his wife Betty. They loved to travel and went on 69 cruises together; and they generously showered their family with gifts and vacations over the years. Jerry loved his cars and his boats. He loved to fish and for many years he and Betty could be found on the water every chance they got, and in earlier times they enjoyed weekends at the family camp on Little Beach Island. The only thing that matched Jerry’s love for his family was his stubborn nature. He lived life on his own terms and was generally unconcerned whether or not you approved. This often-frustrated Betty to no end but the rest of us found it to be an endearing quality and the source of many laughs over the years. Jerry has reeled in his last cast, but we take comfort in a lifetime of happy memories with him. We will all miss his mischievous smile and infectious laugh. A visitation will be held on Thursday, May 6th from 9:30 to 11:00 AM with a service at 11:00 AM at Wimberg Funeral Home, 211 E. Great Creek Rd., Galloway 609-641-0001. Interment will immediately follow at Holy Cross Cemetery. Please come dressed casually to celebrate Jerry's Life. For condolences and directions, please visit wimbergfuneralhome.com.
