Jerry Allen Neutze, a beloved resident of Abingdon, Maryland, departed this world on January 27, 2024, at the Upper Chesapeake Medical Center in Bel Air, Maryland. Born in Baltimore, Maryland, to the late Earl Neutze and Mary (Wilson) Kaifer, Jerry was 72 years old. He was the devoted husband of Waltraut (Butler) Neutze, with whom he shared 51 years of a loving and enduring marriage.
Jerry found joy in the simple pleasures of life, and his dedication to hard work was truly admirable. His love for his craft was evident, and he approached each project with a passion that inspired those around him. When not immersed in his work, Jerry cherished his time spent in the serenity of Ocean City, Maryland, and the warmth of Ocala, Florida. These locations held a special place in his heart, and his visits there were moments of solace and happiness.
A true Jack of all trades, Jerry was known for his ingenuity and skill in "Jerry Rigging" things, a testament to his resourcefulness and creativity. His passion extended beyond work, as he also found fulfillment in teaching home improvement, leaving a lasting impact on those fortunate enough to learn from him.
Jerry's love for the outdoors was evident in his fondness for dogs, fishing, boating, and camping. These activities brought him immense joy, and his enthusiasm was contagious, creating cherished memories for family and friends alike.
Jerry is survived by his devoted wife, Waltraut Neutze, and leaves behind a legacy of love and inspiration. He is also survived by his daughters, Karen (Dennis, Jr.) Ann Neutze Brown and Michelle Christine Dwojewski, and his son, Jerry Allen Neutze, Jr. His memory lives on through his grandchildren, Steven, Amanda, Matthew Sr., Krysten and Heather, as well as his great-grandchildren, Emmaleigh, Robert III, Gavin, Aiden, Zane, Dominic, Matthew Jr., MacKenna, Triston, Anamine and Sebastian. Their bond was unbreakable, and the memories they created together will remain etched in their hearts.
In addition to his immediate family, Jerry is survived by Leonard Kaifer and his brothers, Terry (Mieko) Neutze and Richard (Mary) Neutze.
