In memory of
Jerry Colson
Jerry Colson Jan. 3, 1942 - Oct. 20, 2018 Jerry Colson died like he had lived – quietly at home with his family and pets. His children Ben, Andy, Erin and their families joined neighbors and friends in his honor the following day. He had planned to be there for "his party." In 1986 Jerry survived the Whipple surgery for pancreatic cancer. After a second diagnosis in 2017 he was treated with surgery and chemotherapy and was enjoying his recovery. Treatment complications resulted in kidney failure. Jerry received excellent care with many advancements since 1986. He hopes to further that progress thru the tissue donor program. Please see www.ohsu.edu/brendencolson Jerry was always reading and was happy to see a love of books in his children and their children, ages 1 to 20. To inspire other young readers, please see www.childrensbookbank.org Arrangements by Crown Memorial Center, Tigard. Please sign the online guest book at www.oregonlive.com/obits
