Jerry Lee Truempler, 76, of Riverton, Wyoming passed away Monday, December 4, 2023 at the Help for Health Hospice Home in Riverton. Following his wishes, cremation has taken place and no services are planned.


Jerry was born June 6, 1947 in Deer River, Minnesota to William John and Winnifred Agnes Alecia (Jones) Truempler. He grew up and attended schools in Deer River, Minnesota. He moved with his family to Wyoming where he started his working career at the Dubois Saw Mill.
