Gerald (Jerry) Zeis

Gerald Jerry Zeise, 56, of Kremmling, died on Aug. 3, 2011 in Lakewood, Colo.

He was born in 1955 in Columbus, Ohio to George and Helen Zeise, and he graduated from the Ohio State University with a teaching credential. He was a devoted follower of the Buckeyes and didn’t miss a football game. While he enjoyed his career as a history teacher, he felt his skills would be better used in the automotive industry. Jerry enjoyed living in the mountains. His appreciation of nature is well documented by his numerous wildflower pictures that have been published in the Middle Park Times. He enjoyed skiing, snowmobiling and snowshoeing during the winter months. He spent his summers hiking and exploring historical sights in Colorado and the surrounding states. Jerry was known as the go-to guy at the Kremmling CarQuest counter, helping customers get the correct vehicle parts. He resided in Kremmling with his wife Sheila. A daughter, Amy, resides in California. Zeise is also survived by one sister, Brenda (Rich) Davis.

The crematory is Aspen Crematory, Lakewood. A Celebration of the Life of Gerald Zeis is being held on Monday, August 15 at 6:30 PM in Ceriani Park, 17th St. in Kremmling.
