A family is a legacy of love, a love that lasts forever.

Gerald L. Tschetter

Gerald L. Tschetter, age 63, of Huron, died Sunday, September 23, 2007, at the Huron Regional Medical Center.  His funeral service was Wednesday, September 26 at 11:00 AM at the Mt. Olivet Mennonite Church with the Rev. David Erdman officiating.  Burial was in the Ideal Cemetery. 

Gerald L. Tschetter was born on April 9, 1944 at Huron, South Dakota, to Edward P. and Katie (Tschetter) Tschetter.  He received his education from Hitchcock, graduating from Hitchcock High School.

On January 7, 1966, Gerald married Judy Tschetter at Huron with the Rev. Edward Wiebe officiating.  After their marriage he worked construction, operated gas stations for Carl Hanson, farmed with his brothers, Trevor and Harvey, and continued farming until his death.  Gerald served in the South Dakota National Guard for four years.

Jerry had something to look forward to each season.  In the spring time it was planting crops and watching the baby calves, in the summer it was seeing the crops grow, and when the fall rolled around the highlight was harvesting and hunting.  It was hard to tell what he enjoyed more, hunting or just spending time out with the other hunters.  He grew up attending and was baptized at the Fairfield Bethel Church.

He was preceded in death by his parents.

Grateful for having shared his life are his wife, Judy of Huron; three children, Janet (Travis) Peck of Huron, James (Lisa) Tschetter of Huron and Janelle (Cory) Moss of Rock Valley, Iowa; seven grandchildren, Taylor and Jackson Peck, Kayla Graff, Bailey, Sydney and Abbey Tschetter and Braxton Moss; two brothers, Trevor (Judith) Tschetter of Huron and Harvey (Sharon) Tschetter of Hitchcock; one sister, Edmona Legere of Edmond, Oklahoma; two brothers-in-law; Carroll (Arlene) Tschetter and Harvey (Patricia) Tschetter, both of Huron; one sister-in-law, Lonna Tschetter of Hardin, Montana; three aunts, Susanne Tschetter, Bertha Tschetter and Anne Tschetter, all of Huron; and many nieces and nephews.
