Jerry Anthony Fait

March 17, 1914 ~ June 9, 2020 (age 106)


Jerry Anthony Fait, age 106 years, of West Bend was called home to be with the Lord on June 9, 2020 at New Perspective Senior Living Community in West Bend surrounded by his loving family.

Jerry was born on March 17, 1914 in Milladore to Edward and Mary Fait  (Chinadl).  He was united in marriage to Viola Saeger on December 7, 1939 in Milwaukee.  Viola passed away in 1994.

Jerry was known to his family and many others as “Gramps,” he has given all who have known him an abundance of joy.  Whether it be stealing the show on the dance floor or his star appearances in the Dundee St. Patrick’s Day Parades, Gramps’ spunk and charm was always contagious.  He continued to amaze us right up until his passing at a spry 106 years of age.

Those Jerry leaves behind to cherish his memory include his four children, Nancy (Will) Kopp, David (Carolyn) Fait, Gary Fait, and Susan (Glen) Held; eleven grandchildren, Kerry Redlich, Mark Redlich, Jennifer (Tony) Edwards, Heather (Charles) Brennen, Ryan (Colleen) Fait, Brian Bank, Michael Bank, Abby Fait, Zack Fait, Lisa Badini, and Bill (Heather) Badini.  Jerry is further survived by eleven great-grandchildren; as well as other relatives and friends. 

In addition to his parents and his wife, Viola; Jerry was preceded in death by his daughter, Mary Ballard.
