Jerry Hankel was born September 24, 1933 in Syracuse, NY. In 1943, the family moved to Fort Dodge. He graduated from Fort Dodge Senior High School. Jerry was employed by George A.

The family would like to extend a special thank you to Doctors and Nurses at Trinity Hospital and to the Nurses and Volunteers of Trinity Hospice for their dedicated efforts to provide endless support, knowledge and encouragement throughout Jerry's last days of life.
