Gerald Anthony Bieringer was born on December 30, 1939, to Joseph “Joe” and Elizabeth “Betty” (Ley) Bieringer in Raymond Township, MN. He graduated from school in Sauk Centre. Jerry served his community honorably for over 30 years working for the City of Princeton as well as a volunteer firefighter, including Fire Chief, fire inspector, and building inspector. He was married to his best friend, Noreen Josephine Moser, on August 2, 1958, in Sauk Centre, and together they raised four children. Jerry walked strongly in his faith as a dedicated member of Christ Our Light Catholic Church in Princeton.

Jerry was known for being a “gentle bear,” and was very kind to everyone he knew. He went out of his way to help others and would often lend a hand to strangers in need. He had a special bond with each of his children, grandchildren, and great-grandchildren and enjoyed spending time with his family. Jerry enjoyed woodworking and tinkering in his spare time. Above all else, he will be remembered for being a loving husband, father, grandfather, great-grandfather, and friend to all who knew him.
