Obituary for Jerome "Jerry" F. Kvapil

Jerome (Jerry) Kvapil went to heaven on Monday, July 22, 2019 at the age of 96 at the Wisconsin Veteran’s Home in Chippewa Falls.
Jerry was born to Anton and Katerina Kvapil in Dickenson, North Dakota on October 4, 1922. He was one out of 9 children. He attended the single classroom Colburn Country grade school and completed 8th grade. In 1944 Jerry was drafted in to the Army and fought in World War II. During his leave in 1945, he married the love of his life Evelyn Flodeen on September 4th. He was discharged in June 1946 to return home to his wife and first born son Richard.
Jerry began dairy farming on a land by the river and raised 3 more sons (Eugene, Roger, and Anthony) and 2 daughters (Lynn and Kathryn). In 1960 he bought his big dairy farm between Cornell, Cadott, and Boyd. He was blessed with 2 more daughters (Jerianne and Nancy).
Jerry retired from the big farm in 1979 to a small 40 acre hobby farm in Cornell. He spent the next 30 years enjoying his hobbies of hunting and fishing, playing cards, and watching the birds, Brewers, and NASCAR. He spent many hours nurturing his vegetable garden to give to family and friends.
Through the years his family grew to 8 children, 20 grandkids, 37 great grandkids, 9 great-great grandkids, and numerous others that called him grandpa. He was blessed with many nieces and nephew and life-long friends like Anna and Louie Sykora.
