A photo of Jerry Gentz and Carol Dittmer, his companion of nearly 40 years, sits on a table in the Gentz Electric shop May 4, where a celebration of life service took place for Gentz. Dittmer said the bobblehead of former Green Bay Packers quarterback Brett Favre was a reminder of Gentzs love for the team and favorite player. A large sign was also displayed for visitors to sign.
Friends, family and colleagues joined together at Gentz Electric of Monroe Friday to honor the man they knew as "Big Jer," a successful business owner who gave back to the community by supporting youth activities and spending years on the Monroe Fire Department.
