Jerauld T. "Jerry" Dowd, age 81, of Lockport, passed away unexpectedly Wednesday, October 29, 2014 at the Sisters of Charity Hospital of Buffalo.

He was born in Lockport, NY on November 5, 1932, a son of the late Nicholas and Ruth (Campbell) Dowd.

Jerauld graduated from Lockport Senior High in 1951 and attended Erie County Community College. He proudly served in the US Army and was a veteran of the Korean War.

Jerauld retired a supervisor after 30 years of service working for General Motors at Harrison Radiator. Those who knew Jerry know he never really retired, but instead changed careers to golf. He would go on to work at several golf courses from Naples, FL to Western New York. He ultimately found himself working at Willowbrook Golf Course, which over more than a decade became a second home and family to him.

Jerauld was an avid historian and spent much of his free time doing genealogic research for friends as well as the Ancient Order of Hibernians, where he was the resident historian. He loved to provide people with information about their family’s history and would jump at the chance to help someone learn more about their family tree.

Jerauld was a member of St John the Baptist church in Lockport, NY. In addition, he was a member of the American Legion Post 410 and Ancient Order of Hibernians.

He is survived by his loving wife of 59 years, Nancy (Murrie) Dowd; two daughters Jacqueline Spark and Patricia DiGiorgio; a son, Thomas Dowd; four grandchildren, Thomas Spark, Jourdan Spark, Tanya Stadelmaier, Aaron Stadelmaier; and a brother John (Linda) Dowd. Predeceased by brother Nicholas (Delores) Dowd.

Friends and Family may call Sunday, November 2nd from 2-6pm at Prudden and Kandt funeral home, 242 Genesee St Lockport NY. A Mass of Christian Burial will be celebrated at St John the Baptist church, 168 Chestnut St Lockport, NY at 1pm on Monday, November 3rd. Internment will be in Cold Springs Cemetery.
