Jerome "Jerry" Hustad

October 19, 1940 — July 8, 2020

Jerome (Jerry) Bernett Hustad passed away on July 8, 2020 suddenly but peacefully at St. Mary’s Hospital in Duluth, MN.

Jerry was born on October 19, 1940 to Chester (Chet) and Lillian Hustad in Alexandria, MN.  He graduated from Alexandria High School.  He was married to Phyllis Englebrecht on May 18, 1963 and they remained married for over 57 years. 

He was an active member of the International Brotherhood of Electrical Workers (IBEW) during his occupation as an electrician of which he was very proud. 

Jerry was an avid outdoorsman who loved fishing and hunting of every kind. He spent many hours at the Hustad hunting camp outside of Biwabik getting ready for the big opening weekend.  He loved spending time on the water and in the woods with his family and friends and all his “fur companions” who were all named “Duchess”.

Jerry’s family and friends will always remember him for his hospitality, smile and many stories.  Jerry had his opinions and was always up for a friendly debate.

Jerry is survived by his sons Greg (Kim) Hustad of Cape Coral, FL and Douglas (Kelly Laugen) Hustad of Biwabik; sister Nancy (Jim) Johnson, Columbus, OH; Lee (Roxanne) Hustad of Alexandria, MN; and John Hustad of Minneapolis, MN; his brother in-law Warren (Norma) Engelbrecht, Alexandria, MN; numerous nieces and nephews; and his loyal companion Duchess “Duchy”.

He is preceded in death by his wife Phyllis, parents Chester and Lillian; his father and mother in-law Ralph and Mayme Engelbrecht. 

A Gathering for Family and Friends will be held from 1-3 p.m. on Friday, July 31st, at the Ziemer-Moeglein-Shatava Funeral Home in Gilbert. Please follow social distancing guidelines.
