Gerald “Jerry” Nicholas Thiele
Gerald “Jerry” Nicholas Thiele, 79, a resident of Cape Coral and former snowbird since 2003, formerly of Green Lake, WI, was taken home to his Lord and Savior, peacefully in his sleep, Saturday, April 17, 2021 in Cape Coral, FL. He was born December 24, 1941 in Kaukauna, WI to Robert and Evelyn Thiele, now deceased.
Jerry was a member of Abiding Love Lutheran Church in Cape Coral, Florida. He loved serving his Lord in many ways and especially enjoyed the Tuesday morning Bible study with fellow members. After High School, Jerry was honored to serve his country in the military. After serving his country, he started working in the home remodeling industry and later built two successful businesses. Owning the farm in Green Lake was one of his early passions and he enjoyed raising livestock to support his children in 4-H. The farm also allowed him to share his love for hunting and fishing with his children and grandchildren. Later, he developed a love for boating and took many trips with family and friends throughout Lake Winnebago, the Great Lakes, the Mississippi River and more recently dodging crab pots in Florida. He loved spending time and playing cards with his friends. He was a very kind, gentle, loving man and will be dearly missed by all who knew him.
He is survived by his loving wife of 59 years, Corinne Thiele of Cape Coral; three loving children, Jerry Thiele (Julie) of Oshkosh, WI, Greg Thiele (Lisa) of Suwanee, GA and Lisa Tremore (Dave) of Green Lake, WI; two brothers, Kenneth Thiele (Mary) of Winter Haven, FL and Daniel Thiele (Pam) of Apollo Beach, FL; eight grandchildren, Gerry, Ryan (Ashley), Erin, Andrew, Megan (Kevin), Jeremy, Nathan and Kayla; brother-in-law, Joe Steffes of WI as well as numerous nieces and nephews and many wonderful Friends.
Jerry was not only preceded in death by his parents, but also his sister, Joanne Steffes.
