Jerome P. Bugger

Picture

   Jerome P. Bugger of Collinsville died March 10, 2017, at Anderson Hospital in Maryville after battling pneumonia, just 11 days before his 94th birthday.
   “Jerry” was a member of the Greatest Generation, born to coal mine worker William and Rose Bugger in the family home on Collinsville’s Spring Street on March 21, 1923.  He was one of five boys, including Bernard, Sylvester, Charles and William. A child of the Depression, he began selling magazines at the age of 8, splitting his 15-cent a night take with his parents, then delivering newspapers from uptown Collinsville all the way out to the old leadworks office, via bicycle.
   He graduated from Collinsville High School in 1941, and managed to live long enough to attend his 75th class reunion in the fall of 2016 – when he picked up two of his classmates from nursing homes and drove them to the reunion. He was inducted into the Army in 1943, becoming a sergeant in the Signal Corps during World War II. He fought in France and Germany, and was in the Philippines preparing for an invasion of Japan when the war ended, then served with the occupying forces in Japan. Typical of his service to others, he re-enlisted after the war so that he could continue to qualify for a stipend to help his family, after his father was disabled by a heart attack. As befitting a member of his generation, he treasured his military service and the relationships he made with fellow soldiers. Many a family vacation would spiral off course so that he could renew acquaintances with an old Army buddy in Pennsylvania, Oklahoma City or Long Beach, California.
   Jerry began working at the home office of General American Life Insurance Co. in St. Louis in 1941, and he returned to the company following the war. He served in the reserves, took night classes toward his bachelor’s degree at St. Louis University, and began a career climb that would eventually lead him to the position of Director, Group Insurance Administration, at GA, where he would retire in 1989.
   Along the way, he was introduced by a mutual friend to Ora Jane Wilson, an escaped farm girl from eastern Illinois who was working at the Granite City Army Depot. They were married two years later, on Oct. 17, 1953, in the rectory at SS. Peter and Paul Church. They did their part to contribute to the post-war “Baby Boom,” producing David, Bradley, Nancy (who died shortly after birth) and Douglas.
   Jerry was a great husband and father, and had a solid career in the insurance business. But he was not defined by any of those roles. Rather, he was molded by his part in a generation that knew nothing but industriousness; that would rather die than allow someone else to fix their car, or repair a problem with their house; and that knew how to squeeze a dollar until it squealed.
    Above and beyond those traits, Jerry was a natural born problem solver – he could literally fix, build or craft anything. Typical of his industriousness, after he’d been retired for three years he decided to replace the old window air conditioner at the home on East Country Lane with a central air system. He used his WWII GI Bill to enroll in HVAC classes at Belleville Area College and did the job himself.
   Jerry loved to travel and he’d scrimp and save so that he and Jane, who became a stay-at-home mom, could take the kids on three-week car-and-trailer excursions across the United States each summer. After the children were grown, he and Jane would strike out to visit each at their homes in Germany, Florida, Idaho and New York.
  Dad was a wonderfully generous man who took loving care of Jane after she was debilitated by strokes and dementia in later life, and who reached out to family and friends whenever they were in need. Whether it was helping a brother re-roof a house after a hail storm, or taking a sister-in-law who didn’t drive to the doctor, he was always ready to help. He and two of his brothers built three family homes between them.
   Jerry is survived by sons David (Roxanne), Wallkill, NY; Bradley (Janice), Pocatello, ID, and Douglas (Elaine) of Hamel; brothers Charles (Ann) and William of Collinsville; grandchildren Bradley Jerome, Christopher, Gwendolyn, Sarah, Vlad and Michael; and great-granddaughter Lucy. He was preceded in death by his parents, wife Jane, daughter Nancy, and brothers Bernard and Sylvester.
   Anybody who knew Jerry knew he had his own special philosophy of life. It could best be described as “Jerry’s Rules for Life”:
--Always heat the cup before putting coffee in it.
--Always stop halfway when pulling out of the garage and check your mirrors.
--Ignore the speed limit, drive with the flow.
--There are no strangers – everybody has a story worth hearing.
--When you come from a big family, just about anybody can be your cousin.
--There is always time to help someone else.
--I know I’m a control freak, but there wouldn’t be a problem if everybody just did it my way.
--Keep smiling.
   In lieu of flowers, the family suggests donations to the American Cancer Society or SS. Peter and Paul Catholic Church.
