Gerald E. "Jerry" Bertolini, age 73, of Alliance, passed away to be with our Lord on January 19, 2019, at University Hospital Portage Medical Center after battling pancreatic cancer.
He was born December 19, 1945, in Alliance, Ohio, to Pete and Mary (Spada) Bertolini and lived his entire life in Alliance.
A 1963 graduate of Alliance High School, Jerry then joined the United States Army from 1965 to 1967, and served in Vietnam.
Jerry worked 24 years at Transue & Williams Stamping and retired from PTC Alliance after 15 years.

He loved playing cards and games with family and friends, and enjoyed coaching and helping with Hot Stove League Baseball when his sons were in grade school.
Jerry had a booth at the Carnation City Flea Market where he spent many hours talking with all the people, shoppers and other vendors and also set up his booth at the Carnation Mall Sport and Baseball Card shows. All these things kept him busy after his retirement.
