Jerome (Jerry) Gorski of Endicott, NY passed away unexpectedly at home on Sunday, April 17, 2016. He was 78. He was born December 23, 1937 to Helen and John Z. Gorski, the youngest of five children. He graduated from Kings College in Wilkes Barre, PA and received his MS in Education from Cortland College. In 1963 he married Rita Varazin, and together they had 2 children, Brenda and David. Jerry worked as a teacher at the Union Endicott School District for over 35 years. An avid fisherman, he also enjoyed reading, gardening, casinos and spending time with his grandchildren. Jerry always said he never outgrew his childhood because he loved playing in the dirt and loved the outdoors. He will be greatly missed. Jerry is survived by his wife of 52 years, Rita, their two children, David Gorski, his wife Jane and their son, Jake, in Fairport, NY and Brenda St John Brown, her husband, Jeremy and their son, Cooper, in Chester, UK. He is also survived by his sister, Helen Gorski and his brother, Jack Gorski. Per Jerry’s wishes, there will be no public calling hours and burial will be private at the convenience of the family. Jerry was a devoted member of Our Lady of Good Counsel Catholic church in Endicott and in lieu of flowers donations may be made to the church in his name. Kochamy cię z całego serca. (We love you with all our hearts.)

Jerry, you were a wonderful friend, colleague, and volleyball team mate. Keep practicing your spikes with Bob Holmes, and when I get there, I'll set the ball up for you both.

Jerry's unflagging sense of humor, caring and kindness sustained me through the difficult initial years of teaching. I will always think of him as the teacher who "surfed" on a sled down the hill with his students, supported every crazy idea a new teacher wanted to try out, and sang as one of the Three French Hens at our school Christmas assembly. Jerry was my mentor, my friend, a consummate funnyman and all around good guy. I know he'll be fishing and gardening in heaven but he leaves an empty spot here that can not be filled. Until we meet again my friend.
