Jerry Alan Fuchs passed away while in hospice care in Las Vegas, Nevada, on March 19, 2022.
Jerry was born May 6, 1956, in Bowman, North Dakota, to Harold and Beulah Fuchs of Marmarth, North Dakota. The family lived in Marmarth until moving to Billings in 1964 when Jerry was 8 years old. He attended Grand Ave. Elementary School, Lewis and Clark, and graduated from Billings Senior.
In the early 1980s, Jerry worked for Doc & Eddy’s in Billings and Sparks, Nevada. Throughout his life, Jerry dabbled in many things until he found his calling as a long-haul truck driver. He talked of driving big rigs throughout the country and was thankful when a load brought him through Billings. In 1995, Jerry moved to Las Vegas to be with his father. While in Vegas, Jerry started buying storage units and talked about the treasurers he would find. Once it was motorcycle parts in several boxes that he put together; his love for riding bikes began. He enjoyed tinkering on cars, as well as buying and selling cars. Jerry enjoyed sports and showed much compassion for animals, especially his monster dog, Hammer. Jerry had a great sense of humor, a smile on his face and was always willing to lend a hand to his friends.
He is preceded in death by his parents, Beulah and Harold Fuchs and nephew Chad Rockman. Jerry is survived by sisters, Sheila Rockman (Gene), Debbie West (John McGowan) and Terri Stevens (Ed); nieces Jocelyn Mitchelmore (Peter), Danielle West, Angela Stevens; nephews Trevor and Zach West; and great-nieces Lauren and Payton Mitchelmore.
When life’s journey comes to an end, we all have our cherished memories. May you rest in peace, Jerry.
