Jerry H. Volkman, age 74, passed away peacefully on February 4, 2020.

He is the loving son to the late Herman and Olive (nee Mills) Volkman; adored boyfriend to Denise; cherished brother to Ruth Volkman and Donald Volkman with his wife Sharon Smith Volkman; beloved uncle to many nieces, nephews, and great nieces and nephews; and treasured resident of Sertoma Centre.

Jerry was one of the original clients and a fixture of Sertoma Centre. As an avid Chicago Bears fan he never gave up the belief they would go to the Super Bowl every year. Despite his disabilities he taught us many lessons which included being joyful, loving, caring and kind to others, even when they did not act that way toward him.

Visitation will be Saturday, February 8, 2020 from 10:00 am until the time of his funeral at 12:00 noon at Chapel Hill Gardens South Funeral Home. He will be laid to rest in Chapel Hill Gardens South Cemetery privately. In lieu of flowers, memorials may be made towards Sertoma Centre 4343 W 123rd St, Alsip, IL 60803.
