Jerome William Mohr was born on June 10, 1941 in Alexandria, SD to Willard and Catherine (Oster) Mohr. He was the second of four children. In 1959, he graduated from Alexandria High School in Alexandria,SD and attended Dakota Wesleyan University. He worked his way through college and then joined the Army National Guard in 1963 and was honorably discharged in 1969. While in the National Guard, he honed his marksmanship skills. He was proud of his attendance at several national shoots, where he earned numerous medals. This fostered a lifelong love of trapshooting at local and state levels. On November 26, 1966, he was united in marriage to Jean Volz at Holy Family Catholic Church in Mitchell. Together, they raised three sons; Bryan, Mike, and Steve. Jerry was a great Dad and with Jean, embraced the challenges that came with having a child with unique abilities.

Jerry was a salesman for John Deere Equipment for 37 years, owned and operated Dakota Sunset for 31 years, and was a financial representative for Northwestern Mutual for 10 years.

He was a member of Holy Family Catholic Church, the American Legion, and a lifelong member of the NRA. Jerry was an avid trapshooter and was on a team at the Mitchell Gun Club for 49 years. He made many friends over the years through his love of fishing and hunting. When grandkids came along, he was a proud grandpa, and loved attending their sporting events.

He is survived by his wife Jean; two sons; Bryan (Lisa) Mohr of Sioux Falls, SD, Mike (Kim) Mohr of Mitchell, SD ; four grandchildren; Brandon of Sioux Falls, SD, Taylor of Mitchell, SD, Spencer of West Point, NY and Zach of Mitchell, SD. Also surviving Jerry are his sister Carol Latza of Mitchell, SD, and brothers Tom (Peg) Mohr of Grand Forks, SD, and Rich Mohr of Sioux Falls, SD. He was preceded in death by his parents and son, Steven.

I grew up near Alexandria, SD, so I knew Jerry well. His sister, Carol, was in my class, and Jerry and my brother, Larry, were in the same class. Hopefully, they are both in heaven now.
