Jerry Benjamin Endrizzi was born in Crosby, MN on September 20, 1945 to David and Lelah Endrizzi and raised in Ironton, MN. He attended Ironton Elementary and Crosby High School, graduating in 1963. He attended Staples Vocation College.

He married Jo Ann Neznik in Staples, MN in 1965. They moved to Minneapolis where he was employed by Litton Industries, Univac Computors and Dacon Engineering. In 1968 he began working for Polaris Industries, working for many departments and lastly as Engineering Supervisor until 2007, when he retired. He also built grain bins when Polaris was temporarily closed. On August 31, 1991, he and Marian (Gross) Johnson were united in marriage at Roseau. They lived south of Roseau where they enjoyed working in their yard, spending time at Lake of the Woods Campground and traveling. They were delighted in the arrival of 14 grandchildren, which kept them busy attending activities and later with the arrival of five great-grandchildren. Jerry especially enjoyed relaxing on his back porch with Marian, sipping coffee, listening to the music and appreciating the quiet beauty of their backyard.

Jerry enjoyed hunting, especially deer, and fishing for walleye and trout – and he really loved when he could go deer hunting in the morning and fishing in the afternoon. Jerry was involved in his community as a member of the Jaycees, Sacred Heart Men’s Club, Northland Range Gun Club, Roseau Fire Department, Roseau Eagles Club, Trail Blazers and Knights of Columbus.

Jerry passed away on September 23, 2017 at the age of 72 at Roseau LifeCare.
