Gerald A. Wolter

May 14, 1971 — March 13, 2023


Gerald Allen Wolter, 51, of Mantador, North Dakota, passed away unexpectedly from a car accident on Monday, March 13, 2023, near Mooreton, ND.  His memorial service will be at 12 noon on Monday, March 20, 2023, at Vertin-Munson Funeral Home, Wahpeton, ND.  Visitation will be two hours prior to service.  René Hasbargen will officiate. 

Gerald Allen Wolter, better known as Jerry, was born to Alfred and Judy (Desjarlais) Wolter on May 14, 1971, in Breckenridge, Minnesota.  Jerry grew up on the family farm in Sunnyside Township, and attended school in Breckenridge, MN. 

On March 31, 2000, he was united in marriage to Sheridy Link in Fergus Falls.  The couple eventually made their home in Mantador, North Dakota, where they raised their five children.

Jerry was known for being very social, and a smooth talker.  He was also a huge jokester, always wanting to make people laugh.  He was known as a guy who was willing to help everyone.  He didn’t like to sit still.  Jerry’s passion was driving truck, but he also enjoyed hunting, farming, and working on vehicles.

Jerry enjoyed spending time with his family, whether it be at the farm, hunting shack, or working in the shed with his son.  He was readily anticipating the birth of his first grandchild, due in May.

Jerry is survived by his wife, Sheridy; children, Mackenzie (Jake Seaton), Austin (Chloe Rediske), Megan, Matthew, Allie (Kyle) Siemieniewski, their son Sam; siblings, Michael Wolter, Melissa Wolter, Terri (Brian Dumarce) Crawford, Jackie Crawford; father-in-law, Gary (Teresa) Link; mother-in-law, Julie Stock; and many other aunts, uncles, nieces, and nephews.

He was preceded in death by his parents, Alfred and Judy Wolter; and brother, Jake Wolter.
