FRIEDRICH, Jerome Mar 30, 1931 – Mar 30, 2021

Jerome W. Friedrich passed away peacefully surrounded by family members on his 90th birthday.
Jerry retired from Kokomo Schools in 1986, having served in teaching and administration positions at Elwood Haynes, Maple Crest and Bon Aire. Many of his students remained in contact with Mr. Friedrich after he retired, appreciating his continuing mentorship and guidance. Though a permanent Florida resident, Friedrich continued to “summer” in Kokomo.
Always quick with a joke, Jerry strived to bring laughter to others. “Make someone laugh everyday” was Jerry’s motto.
Always current on politics and world events, Friedrich had a keen memory for things both important and trivial. His passions included following Notre Dame football and Butler basketball and telling mostly true stories.
An Air Force veteran and father to three children, Jerry was preceded in death by his wife, Linda, and is survived by former wife, Marilyn; two sisters, Alice and Jane; daughters, Rochelle and Denise; son, Steven; and beloved dog, Lulu.
