      Jerry Lee Brumbaugh, age 66, of Park Rapids, Minnesota, passed away peacefully at his mother’s home on Wednesday, October 21, 2020 surrounded by his loved ones.

      Jerry was born on June 14, 1954 in Park Rapids, MN to Glenn and Irene (Cooper) Brumbaugh.  Jerry lived all of his life at the family home on Hwy 71.  He attended Park Rapids public schools and graduated with the class of 1972.  Upon graduating, Jerry became a custodian/maintenance worker for Park Rapids schools, earning a Chief Engineer License as a boiler operator in 1986.  Due to his health, Jerry retired in 2016 after 42 years of continual service.
