We are saddened by the loss of our beloved Jerry Lorenzo, who passed away on February 16th surrounded by his loving family. He was a husband, father, grandfather, and friend to so many. Jerry was born in Havana, Cuba and emigrated to the US with his family where they settled in Port Chester, New York. Jerry joined the US Army and went on to fight in the Vietnam war. He later married his high school sweetheart and settled in Greenwich, Connecticut. Jerry eventually enjoyed retirement in Port Saint Lucie, Florida.

Jerry was a well known local builder who enjoyed many sporting hobbies through the years including car racing, motorcycles, softball, and hunting. He was an avid pigeon racer, and had a questionable golf game! Jerry had the most adventurous spirit and never turned down a challenge. His big personality lit up the room and his infectious smile and laugh will be genuinely missed by so many. Jerry’s greatest joy was spending time with his family. His grandchildren were the light of his life. He loved to travel and recently, with his wife, children, and grandchildren he visited Cuba where he shared his birthplace and early memories.

Jerry is survived by his wife of 53 years, Barbara Lorenzo (Sienkiewicz), daughters Lori Hebert, and Karyn (Robert) Willmann. He also leaves behind his beloved grandchildren, Joshua, Abbey, Grace, and Olivia as well as his sister in law Marylee, nephew Daniel (Courtney) and his niece Amy (Aaron). Jerry will be very missed by his life long “posse” of friends, Jerry, Bert, Michael, Alex, and Frank. Jerry is preceded in death by his parents Mario and Lazara, his brother Chas, his nephew Mark, and his precious grandchild Jacob Willmann.

A Celebration of Life will be held at Aycock Funeral Home in Tradition, Florida on Saturday February 20th, 4:00-6:00pm.

Dear Barbara, Lori and Karyn,
I am so sorry for the loss of your husband and Dad. I know your hearts will be heavy for a long time and I hope you’re able to put all those special memories front and center to guide you each day.

Barb, I will always remember driving to high school with you and Jerry sitting in the back seat of his meticulously, shiny car of that time. Seems like not that long ago, like the blink of an eye. I also remember a few years ago, he was kind enough to take me over to the golf range to hit some balls and give me some pointers for a game I had no business being in. :) Jerry was the go-to guy of the family for everyone’s fix-it projects, big and small. He was always willing to lend a hand and not too long ago, he put up a curtain rod for me while you were visiting. He will be missed and I will be here for you.
Much love,

Karyn Lorenzo Willmann

It’s impossible to think of what life will be like without you Dad. You were the center of our universe. A true family man, provider, and friend. The best Dad and Pop any girl could ever ask for. No Dad, “You’re the Best”

Remembering our cousins reunion a few years ago when Jerry and BARBARA and the rest of the family came to the house. I hadn’t seen Jerry in so many years and he was still just as handsome as ever and as sweet as ever. I remember how happy my brother Anthony was to see him after all those years playing ball together and going to school together. I am sure that God was waiting with open arms when Jerry came through those golden gates. May you rest in peace dear cousin. With love, cousins, Carol and Anthony Zagami

O ... I have so many fond memories of this man. The first time I met Jerry was at a dirt race... very hot night... I loved it... then the fun begins... upstate four wheeling... o how I loved it! How I was so welcomed into the group. No Jerry I was never a good cook.. something I’m very proud of but your brother didn’t starve! O when I looked at you when you were with your grandchildren.. that look in your eyes.. that said it all. Just two weeks ago I came for a visit... I will cherish that day for the rest of my life and will be forever grateful! So now you give Chas a big smooch for me... and you two try to behave up there... love you Jerry Lo.. you are the best and thank you for everything you have done for me through the years ❤️

Enjoyed a snowmobile tour in Quebec with Jerry, Chas, Bobby P. , Roger K. , Mike Quadrini , Mike Brent and my son, Kevin. A week long journey full of lots of laughs and great memories.

The picture is of Jerry on the right helping my son getting Mike B's sled back up to the trail after he kind of missed a turn . . . no injuries but Mike took some razzing.

Safe trails my friend.

Life just won't be the same when I walk into your Home and not seeing Jerry in his recliner watching TV. We all had so many good times laughing and joking around. Rocky used to love going Fishing with Jerry in all the beautiful lakes. Jerry was more like a Brother instead of a Brother-in-Law. His generously was part of who he was. What a very sad loss for all of us. Rest in peace dear Jerry. Patricia & Rocky
