March 29, 1927 — July 23, 2019

Jerome “Jerry” Albert Feesl, age 92 of Cottage Grove, passed away July 23, 2019.

Memorial service 11 am, Friday., Aug. 16, 2019 at Kok Funeral Home, 7676 – 80th Street S., Cottage Grove with visitation one hour prior.  Burial will take place at Ft. Snelling National Cemetery.

Jerry was born March 29, 1927 in West St. Paul, Minnesota to Vincent and Anna (Sidel) Feesl.  As a young man he worked on the railroad where he served as a cook.  He enlisted in the US Marine Corps and honorably served his country during World War II.  After completing his military service he was employed at Ft. Snelling and the US Post Office until he took a position with the Cottage Grove Public Works Department where he worked as a mechanic until he retired.

Jerry was married to Joanne Birkeland in 1957 and their union was blessed with a daughter, Julie and son, John.  They went on several family vacations through the years and toured much of the United States.

He enjoyed bowling and fishing, but his first love was working on and restoring cars.  He was a member of the Minnesota Street Rod Association and the Slow Pokes.  He proudly shared the work he had done in restoring his 1932 Ford and his 1940 Ford Two Door, which were two of his favorites.

He is survived by his daughter Julie McCabe; son John; granddaughters Cari Graber-Feesl, Shelby and Sara McCabe and many nieces and nephews.  Preceded by wife Joanne; parents Vincent and Anna; siblings Matthew, Lawrence, George, Joseph, Benard, Teckla and Terese.
