Jerry Finzer was lifted into the arms of our Lord on March 30,2014 when he lost his battle with complications from cancer.

Originally from Rochester, NY hwere he worked at Xerox for 37 years, he retired in 2005 and RV’d with his wife Laurie for two years before moving to Rancho Rialto in Yuma, AZ in 2007.

He enjoyed activities with his frineds in and around the park, ran a Wii Bowling team at Rancho Rialto, and his greatest joy was interacting with his frineds’ pets and was often referred to as “The Dog Whisperer” because of his fondness and gentle ways with his four-legged friends.

He is survived by his wife, Laurie Fitzpatrick Finzer, his mother-in-law, Margery Fitzpatrick of Ellicottville, his daughter Jessica Mayville, son-in-law William Mayville, grandson Hunter Mayville in Parma Heights, OH, his mother, Marie Finzer in Ormond Beach, FL, his sister, Karen Finzer in Ormond Beach, FL, and his brother, Randy Finzer, in Webster, NY.

A celebration of his life will be planned in November 2014 when many of his friends will be returning to Rancho Rialto for the winter season.
