Gerald "Jerry" D. Giorgi

March 17, 1945 — March 24, 2023

Gerald (Jerry) Giorgi, 78, of Frankfort, IL passed away peacefully on March 24th surrounded by his family. Jerry was born on March 17, 1945; St. Patrick's Day, a day he was so proud of and celebrated one last time a week before his death. He was born in Oak Park, IL son of the late Harry and Emily Giorgi; husband to the late Teresann Giorgi (Nardi); father to J.P Giorgi, Angela (Neil) Hughes; Christopher (Melanie); Jeno (Anna); dear brother to Lorene (Fred) Laubach. He will be missed and remembered as "Grandpa" to Cullen, Teaghan, Nolan, Gianna, Fianna, Sienna, Josephine, Nico and Francesca. Jerry worked as a court reporter for 40 years at 26th and California (Cook County Courthouse) and was proud of his career and the friendships he made. Jerry and Terry left the city in 1972 to pursue their passion of raising and showing horses and built their home in Frankfort. After retiring Jerry volunteered and joined many clubs. He was most proud of training his Wire Fox Terriers (Ranger and Asta) to be therapy dogs and volunteers at Silver Cross Hospital. From Kiwanis Club, to his gun club to volunteering with his therapy dog Jerry lived life to the fullest. You could catch him in his red corvette at any fair, swap meet, craft or car show, of course with his dogs by his side.
