Jerome (Jerry) was born in Hankinson, ND on January 13, 1935. He grew up on the family farm and attended school at St. Francis Academy, in Hankinson. He would say he was extremely fortunate to meet the person who would help make his life whole, Victoria (Vicky) Gaulker and on July 28th, 1956, they were married at St. Phillip’s Catholic Church in Hankinson. After a brief stay in Wahpeton, ND, Jerry and Vicky moved to Fargo in the early 1960’s to start their family.

For over 40 years, Jerry worked as a roofer, predominantly for Thompson and Pierce roofing companies in the Fargo area. In his early years, Jerry, and Vicky along with their family enjoyed summers at their cabin on Lake Elsie. In his later years, Jerry enjoyed time with his grandchildren and watching sports.

Jerry is survived by his sons, Jerry and Scott (Hollie); grandchildren, Missy, Jennifer, Samantha (Tyler), Dustin, Shawna, and Gracie; great-grandchildren, Peyton, Miley, Avery, Hadley, Grady, Tucker, Olivia, and Case; and several nieces and nephews. He was preceded in death by his wife Victoria; Daughter, Peggy; parents, Peter and Sophia (Grob) Differding; sisters, Deloris Gereszek, Helen Ostby, Jean Ostby, Mary Evenson, Florence Weiss, Sophia Differding and Patricia Prchal; brothers Cyril, Francis, Benjamin, Peter, Charles, and Adolph Differding.
