Jerry Edward Klaus, 64, of Schuyler Falls, died Monday, May 1, 2023, at his residence. He was born in Alton, Illinois, April 1, 1959, the son of Robert and Barbara (Bruner) Klaus. Jerry served as a Submarine Machinist Mate in the US Navy. During his service, he deployed on SSN 606 Tinosa, SSN 668 Spadefish, SSN 707 Portsmouth, and SSN 765 Montpelier. After 22 years of proudly serving his country, Jerry retired an E8 Senior Chief. After retirement, Jerry worked as a government contractor before moving north and enjoying civilian life. Everything he did was with great detail and pride, so it's no surprise he often held leadership roles. He made an impact in all of his endeavors to iclude Pactiv Corporation, the Board of Elections, and most recently, Harbor Freight in Plattsburgh. Jerry enjoyed working on cars, racing, home improvement projects, caring for his beloved animals, and spending time with his best friend and wife, Patti. He had many car and motorcycle projects over the years, but his most prized was his 2004 GTO. He served as technical advisor for the 2004-2006 Pontiac GTO model through the GTOAA. He will be remembered as a loving husband, a devoted father, and a fun grandpa. Jerry is survived by his wife of 24 years, Patricia Klaus; his son Christopher Klaus; his daughter Holly Klaus; his Parents Robert (and Carol) Klaus and Barbara (Bruner) Hedrick; his sisters Deborah Klaus, Patricia Klaus, and JoAnn Fielder; his brother Robert Klaus; his aunts Diana Klaus-Howland and Carol Biberdorf; his step-sons Joseph and David Guerrero; and his grandchildren Scarlett Klaus, David Guerrero Jr., Parker Klaus, Ryann Klaus, and Liam Guerrero.
