Jerry J. Wittwer, 64, of Warners, died suddenly on July 28. He was born in Syracuse on July 29, 1954. He grew up in Manlius and attended Fayetteville-Manlius Schools. Jerry made Warners his home for over 30 years. He worked over 20 years as “the best damn machinist” at Syracuse China until they closed and retired from Omega Wire in Jordan.

Jerry was settling into retirement, vacationing in the Outer Banks, spending his Monday mornings with Pete and Linny, afternoons loving the grandkids and reminding them to wear shoes, and his Saturday evenings with all the people who stopped by to stand in the shop, watching him do what he loved and maybe learn something. Jerry enjoyed bee keeping. He would give anyone the “shirt off his back” asking only in return for the kids to behave.

He is survived by his children, James and Lisa Wittwer; daughter-in-law, Kati Wittwer; former spouse, Lory Wittwer; brother, Jon (Rita) Wittwer; sister, Joan (John) Batzold; four grandchildren, Kaden, Reagan, Gabriella and Makenna; and nieces, nephews and cousins. He was predeceased by his parents, Robert and Arlene Wittwer.

Family and friends may call from 5-7 pm on Thursday, August 1 at Eaton-Tubbs Fayetteville Chapel, 7191 E. Genesee St., Fayetteville. The funeral will be at 11 am on Friday, August 2 at the funeral home.

Best memory of all was the night of the robo call in the garage we passed the phone around and I started with it and passed it to Jerry and then to Frank and then to Vic and then to Mickey and then to Rick and then to George and then back to Jerry who asked the goof on the phone for his home phone number cuz we we're all busy and it went around twice and then Jerry asked for the guys home phone number a second time and the guy finally hung up we we're all in stitches laughing so hard and we almost peed our pants and that made the best time ever and that was our crazy ways of doing things, Rest in peace my brother.
Love your brother
Crazy Jerry.

I’m still not sure you invited me, but I spent much of my childhood at his house in the summers. Digging out retaining walls and building the shop. Some of my best memories in my life were spent with him and his family. He always looked out for me and made sure I was ok. I learned a lot from him over the years. He was a very special person to so many people and my heart hurts for losing someone so awesome. I will forever be grateful of the time I had with him. Forever in my heart
I love you Jerry. ❤️
