Jerry Breiling Obituary

In Loving Memory of Jerry S. Breiling.

It is with heavy hearts that we announce the passing of Jerry S. Breiling, who left us on Friday, October 20, 2023. Jerry, 63, touched the lives of many and will be profoundly missed by all who had the privilege of knowing him.

Jerry is survived by his long-time love and business partner, Serge Pellicelli, who held a special place in his heart. He is also survived by his sister Norma (Jim Verga) and his brothers Rudi (Tony L. Gresham), Frank (late Bonnie Breiling), Tom (Kim Breiling), Michael (Kathy Breiling), and Scott (Heather Breiling). His memory lives on in the hearts of his aunt, numerous loving nieces, nephews, and other relatives.

From Serge's family, Jerry is remembered by his daughter Marie-Eve, his grandchildren William and Lily-Jade Bujold, and his siblings: Real (Normand Boucher), Bernard (Lucie Ouellet), Marlene (Gaby Boivin), Guy (Martine Allard), and Yves (Chantal Leblanc).

Jerry was not only a beloved family member but also a respected figure in the LGBT Milwaukee Community. He was known for his caring and nurturing nature, always looking out for his people. His kindness and compassion left a lasting impact on the many lives he touched.

The staff of KRUZ bar, Jerry's many friends, and loyal KRUZ customers all hold cherished memories of him. He will be remembered for his warm and welcoming presence, and the love and care he bestowed upon those around him.

Jerry and Serge wished to extend their heartfelt gratitude to Nancy Breiling, the compassionate team at Aurora Hospital Home Care, the dedicated medical professionals at the Medical College of Froedtert Hospital, and the caring staff at Froedtert who supported him over the years.

We will forever cherish the love that Jerry shared with us and the profound impact he made on our lives.
