Jerry DeSimone, 59, passed away unexpectedly at his home in Rochester, N.H. on Saturday, October 21st, 2017.
Ciriaco, “Jerry,” DeSimone was born in Boston, Mass. on September 11, 1958. He grew up with a deep devotion for family and his passion for cars brought him to work for the family owned business, Chris Auto Body, in Salisbury, Massachusetts where he earned a reputation for his custom exhaust and paint work. Throughout the years, his mechanic and collision repair expertise, along with his love for helping customers, helped make him become everyone’s favorite mechanic. When he wasn’t working, Jerry enjoyed spending time with his family, hunting, fishing, and playing defense like Bobby Orr on the ice.
Jerry is survived by his loving wife, Kimberly (Rees) DeSimone of Rochester, N.H.; mother, Lina (Deluca) DeSimone of Salisbury, Mass.; three sons, Race and Heath DeSimone of Berwick, Maine and Paul Curreri Jr. of West Peabody, Massachusetts; daughter, Ashlee DeConinck of Rochester, New Hampshire; three grandchildren, Juliana, Layla, and Rocco; sister, Marilyn Ford; two nephews, Billy and Jonathan Ford; cousins, Richard Sciaudone, Rochelle Sciaudone-Destefano, Rose Drelick, Cathy Dolloff, Chris and Daniel DeLuca and his favorite little companion, Mugzie.
Jerry was a friend to many and loved by all who knew him. He will be forever missed and always in our hearts.
A Mass will be held at St. Mary’s Church, 71 Lowell St. Rochester, N.H., at 11 a.m. on Thursday, October, 26th. Family would like to invite friends and loved ones back to the church from 12 to 3 p.m. for a gathering of remembrance.
