Jerry H. Day of Franklin passed away on April 28, 2021 after a long illness (non-Covid related).

Jerry is survived by his wife, Diane (Jensen), to whom he was married for 63 years; sons Daniel (Jean Marie) of Vernon and Jimmy (Lisa) of TN; grandchildren Matthew (Lauren) and Travis (Tara) McKowen; Tyler, Kevin and Jason Day of PA; Jenna Day of Vernon; Tabitha and Teal Day of Tennessee; 3 great-grandchildren, Madison, Jack, and Grayson McKowen; and his former daughter-in-law Darlene Day. He was predeceased by his parents, Lenore and Orville Day; son Jerry Day; infant great-granddaughter Sequoia Day; and several brothers and sisters.

Jerry was an active member of the First Presbyterian Church in Franklin and the Franklin Seniors. He liked walking, telling tales from his youth and especially travelling, having visited Alaska twice, Hawaii, taken cruises, and toured numerous other locations. Jerry is perhaps best known locally as the Rock Man because of his extensive collection of Franklinite and other rocks, minerals and gems that he mined locally and turned into jewelry, sand art, spheres, and signs. He was a self-proclaimed “bad boy” in his youth, zipping around on his motorcycle with Diane on the back.

Jerry lived all of his life in Sussex County, first in Hamburg, then in Franklin, where he raised his family. He served in the US Army and retired after more than 50 years with Accurate Forming in Hamburg as a tool and die maker/machinist/foreman.

Graveside services for Jerry will be private and a memorial service will be held at a later date. Arrangements are under the direction of the F. John Ramsey Funeral Home, One Main Street, Franklin, NJ 07416.

In lieu of flowers, donations may be made to the Franklin Mineral Museum and the Franklin First Presbyterian Church in Jerry’s honor.

Dear Diane, Danny, Jimmy, and Grands...
As I think of you all and pray for you this week as well as in the weeks ahead, I am also sorry to lose my Good Ol' Cousin. It is comforting to know there is no more stress and pain or worries for him and that we can all reunite soon again if we only trust and believe in our Lord Jesus.
God bless you all,
Eleanor Gromlich
