April 7, 1940-March 30, 2024

            Gerald Cliffton Boon, 83, passed away at Memorial Hospital, South Bend, on Saturday, March 30, 2024.

            Jerry, as he was referred to by family and friends, was born on April 7, 1940, in Aurora, IL to Cliffton and Lyla Jean (Jackson) Boon. He was preceded in death by his parents, a brother, Donald Boon, and a grandson, Jonthomas Hobbs.

            Jerry was a graduate from North Central College with an accounting degree. Jerry navigated through various vocations across numerous fields.

Always leading both  personally and professionally with honesty, integrity and acceptance, leaving an indelible mark wherever he went. He was a true Renaissance soul who worked at the Atomic Energy Commission, Fermilab in Batavia, Illinois, The Ringling Art Museum in Sarasota, Florida, worked as a city manager in Maumelle Arkansas, and the Little Rock Water Department, before retiring to Florida - eventually moving to northern Indiana to be closer to his children and grand children. 

            On December 9, 1978, in West Chicago, IL he married Susan Tibbs. She survives along with two children, Todd (Christle) Madding and Kelly Morton; and grandchildren, Zachery Morton, Tessa Hobbs, Cole Dodson, Cole Hobbs, and Madison Dodson; and one great-grandchild, Raine Petrick.

            Jerry was heavily involved in a multitude of volunteer work in the community throughout his life, as well as Lions Club and Rotary Club. He was also an active Member of Vineyard Church, Mishawaka. 

            Jerry was a very loving, patient, and friendly man who started every day with a smile and a jovial greeting to everyone he came in contact with. He will be sorely missed by all who knew him. 

            A Celebration of Life event will be scheduled at a later date by friends and family. 

           As per his wishes there will be no formal funeral services. Hahn Funeral Home, Mishawaka has been entrusted with handling the final arrangements.
