Jerry J. Koslowski, 76, of Falcon Heights, died Dec. 14, 2017, after a seven-and-a-half-year battle with cancer and other illnesses.
He was born in Waubay, S.D. He married his high school sweetheart in November 1960. He worked as a forklift operator and supervisor for Molin Concrete for more than 30 years. Before his decline in health, he was a horseshoe and dart champion, loved to play cards and loved ballroom dancing, especially a good fast polka or two-step. Jerry will be remembered as a good, kind-hearted person, never one to complain.
He is survived by his wife of 57 years, Annette; daughter, Kimberly, and son, Kelly; twin sister, Lucille Ravellette; five grandchildren; and nine great-grandchildren.
He was preceded in death by his parents, Joseph and Helen; brothers, Edmund and David; and sisters, Florence Weyer and Tina Biesch.
Mass of Christian Burial was celebrated Dec. 20 at St. Rose of Lima Catholic Church in Roseville, with burial at Calvary Cemetery.
