Jerold (Jerry) A. Shoer, of Rockland, entered into rest peacefully at home on Dec. 12, 2020 at the age of 72. He was surrounded by his beloved Patrica B. Duane and his son Scott Shoer.
Born Aug. 5, 1948, he was the son of Leo and Sylvia Shoer of Peabody, the devoted father of Scott Shoer and his wife Gina of Franklin, and of Andrew Shoer of New Hampshire. Affectionately known as Papa to his beautiful grandchildren Stella, Oscar, and Isaac of Franklin, and Leo of Bridgewater.
Jerry was also the irreverent and lovable brother to Susan Shoer of Pensacola, Florida, and Steven Shoer and his wife, Elizabeth of Melbourne, Florida.
He grew up in Peabody and went on to earn his MBA from Babson, at which point he worked as a favorite sales and marketing man for multiple business on both the North and South Shores.
Jerry was the bandleader of a misfit group of Shoers and unShoers who loved telling stories to anyone who would listen … and even to those who weren’t listening. He cherished his time with family, friends, colleagues and clients and will be missed by all.
Due to regulations imposed by the Coronavirus pandemic, a private graveside service will be held. In lieu of flowers, expressions of sympathy maybe made in his memory to Old Colony Hospice, 321 Manley St., West Bridgewater, MA 02379.
