Gerald Ray Hliboki, 76, entered into peace on Friday, June 13, 2014. He left behind his son, Keith Hliboki, Montesano, daughter, Laura (Kelly) Rhinehart, Fruitland, ID, brothers, Jim (JoAnn) Hliboki, Montesano, and Dick (Pennie) Hliboki, Rochester, grandkids, Zach (Alyssa), Josh and Sarah Rhinehart, Idaho, and many special family and friends too numerous too mention.
Jerry was born March 27, 1938 in Hoquiam, Wash. He was preceded in death by his parents Andrew and Edna Hliboki. Jerry graduated from Aberdeen HS in 1957 and was awarded Best Physique. Jerry worked at Swansons and Sylvan Construction for many years before starting his own construction company. He enjoyed hunting, camping and spending time in the woods. In later years he became quite the chef and loved sharing his creations with others. Jerry served in the US Army and later loved serving the troops and the families of the deployed military.
Jerry donated his time to many local organizations including the local VFW. He enjoyed digging and especially eating razor clams and playing cards with his friends and his family. Jerry left our lives before we were ready to let go but he will remain in our hearts forever.
