Gerald “Jerry” Waterhouse of Cottage Grove passed away at home Dec. 11, 2021 of cancer.
Jerry was born April 1, 1951 in Pullman, Wash. to parents Walter and Verline (Hull) Waterhouse. Jerry worked as a shoe salesman and manager for most of his career until he made the change to maintenance manager. He married Carol Lynn Westerkamp on Dec. 11, 1979 in Vancouver, Wash.
Jerry liked working on cars and doing projects around the house. He liked to fish, tell bad dad jokes, and lottery scratch-its. He had a cat Collin who followed him everywhere and acted and barked like a dog. But mostly Jerry liked spending time with his family.
He is survived by his wife of 42 years Carol, daughter Rhonda Waterhouse of Cottage Grove; son Eric (Liz) of Lewiston, Idaho; brother Sam Waterhouse of Hagerman, Idaho; brother Joe Waterhouse of Monroe, Mich.; granddaughters Brittany Barloon, Breana and Brandy Waterhouse; and great-grandchild Eliza Sharp. Jerry is preceded in death by his brother Chris Waterhouse. There are no services planned at this time. Arrangements by Smith-Lund-Mills Funeral Chapel and Crematorium.
