Gerry N. Bolger

May 5, 1954 — September 19, 2023

  Gerry Neal Bolger passed away on Tuesday, September 19th, in Casper, WY, following a long battle with early-onset Alzheimer’s at the age of 70. He is survived by his spouse of 50 years, Debra, and his three children Trever Bolger, and Toni Smith, both of Casper, WY, and Trent Bolger, his daughter-in-law Katrina Bolger of Helena, MT; and his three grandchildren, Isaac, Eleanor (Nora), and Alora. He is also survived by his twin sister Connie Harvell and his older sister Mindy Carter, both of Casper, and numerous cousins, nieces, nephews, and extended family. He was preceded in death by his mother, Donna Bolger, his father, Harrold Bolger, his siter, Tracy Hunt, and his nephew, Joshua Harvell, all of Casper, WY.

  Gerry was blessed with a warrior’s spirit. He served honorably as a Vietnam-era veteran as a Sergeant of the 1st Armored Division in the U.S. Army, which took him and his then-young family to Bamberg, Germany. Throughout his life, he loved any form of competition or sport. He was an avid baseball and soccer coach to his children, played lunchtime pick-up basketball games with other middle-aged men, and was an avid golfer following to many injuries to continue to play at the level of aggressive basketball he wanted to play. He cheered on his beloved University of Wyoming Pokes, Denver Broncos, and Utah Jazz.

  He and his wife coached and supported all three of his children, each into a first-generation college degree. He loved the music of the 60s and 70s, even if he had no clue what the words were and made up his own. Later in life, he became involved with many charities to feed hungry kids and helped start a backpack food program.

  His funeral is scheduled for 10:00 a.m., Monday the 25th, at Bustard & Jacoby Funeral Home in Casper with a committal service following the funeral Service at Oregon Trail State Veterans Cemetery. A viewing will be held at 1:00 p.m. on Sunday the 24th at Bustard & Jacoby Funeral Home.
