Gerald Francis Sulewski went to be with the Lord on September 7th 2018. Jerry was born in Holyoke on October 27th 1948 and was a Holyoke police officer for 32 years. Following his retirement, he worked for the Office of the Inspector General until he became ill. He leaves his devoted wife, Elizabeth; his brothers and sisters; Leonard “Butch” (Halina), Frank, Dorothy Zerek, Bernadette LeClerc, Rosemary Dutilly, Christine Sulewski, Roman (Phyllis), sister-in-law June, and many nieces and nephews. He was predeceased by his brothers Richard and Lou. Anyone who knew him knew he was a straight-shooter but had a gentle heart. He loved animals, fishing and gardening and had a sharp sense of humor that will be sorely missed.
