Obituary

Gerald "Jerry" Floyd Grover, 83, of Baker City, Oregon, passed away on October 28, 2022, at his residence.  A private graveside service will be held in the near future in Bend, Oregon.

Jerry was born on June 4, 1939, in Cortland, New York. He graduated from Marathon High School in Marathon, New York. After high school, Jerry attended the New York State Ranger School and studied environmental science and forestry. After moving to Oregon, Jerry worked for the Oregon State Forest Service and fought wildfires on the Hot Shot Crew out of Redmond, Oregon. In 1968, Jerry earned a Bachelor's degree from Oregon State University and was able to pursue his dream of being a wildlife biologist. Jerry worked for the Oregon Department of Fish and Wildlife for thirty years, retiring in 1998.

On June 14, 1964, Jerry married Barbara L. Winslow in Bend, Oregon, and together they had two daughters, Cheryl and Amy. 

Jerry loved wildlife and nature, and in his spare time, he enjoyed hunting, fishing, taking road trips, gardening, bird watching, Indian beadwork, and reading.

Jerry is survived by his daughters, Cheryl (Harold) Myers, of Denham Springs, Louisiana, and Amy White of Baker City, Oregon; brother Benjamin Grover of Marathon, New York; and his grandchildren, Nicholas, Alyssa, Ryan, Jayme, Chandler, and Kameron. 

He is preceded in death by his wife, Barbara L. Grover, and his grandson, Tristan.
