Gerardo Vigna, of Lake Saint Louis, MO, passed away Monday, July 6, 2020 at the age of 80. Beloved husband of Martha J. Vigna (nee Jimenez); cherished son of the late Gaetano Luigi and Assunta Vigna; devoted father of Luigi G. Vigna and John A. (fiancée Aylin Ortiz) Vigna; loving grandfather of Victoria Vigna and Gianni Vigna; dear brother of Mary (the late Gino) Scarcella, Frank (Deanna) Vigna, Gina (Biagio) Granata, Rosetta Vigna and the late Alfonso (Jeanette) Vigna; brother-in-law of Elsa (Daniel) Antoniades, Lourdes Jimenez Carcoba, the late Carmen Maguire and the late Irma Jimenez Carcoba; Jerry is survived by numerous nieces, nephews, cousins and friends.

Jerry immigrated from Italy at the age of 18 to join his family and later served in the US Army. He was introduced to his wife by her sister and they were married for 54 years. Jerry was very well loved as a sales consultant in the beauty industry for over forty years. When he retired, in 2002, his clients and former employer kept asking him to return. He enjoyed golfing and took that up “full-time” along with fishing. Jerry had a green thumb and grew the very best tomatoes and had the biggest Fig Tree.  He was a very good cook and could be very inventive, but it always turned out delicious. Spending time with family was most important to him. Jerry was dearly loved and will be greatly missed by all who knew him.

Memorials may be made in Jerry’s name to American Cancer Society or Alzheimer's Association.

    candle 1My condolences to the Vigna family. I remember Martha and Jerry from the early days at St. John Bosco when I was playing guitar mass in the 70’s and they were always so nice with a big smile. I will miss Jerry’s smile. Mark Koehler

    Dear Martha
    We are so sad for you at the loss of your beloved Jerry.
    He will be deeply missed by the St John Bosco community…we loved his
    smiling face at church and the fish fries. Your front pew at Mass will be so
    empty now. Heaven has gained another being to welcome us all when we arrive.
    Take care and God bless you and your family.
    Love
    Amy and Bill Smith and family

So many memories, all good. Thank you God for sharing this wonderful man’s life with us. Martha, always good to see you; please stay in touch.

    candle 3I have such fond memories of “Uncle Jerry”. As our soccer coach he was perfect: supportive, passionate, and most importantly there for all of us to have fun. And he was always with a smile on his face. Very sorry to hear of his passing and my condolences to Luigi John Martha Vito Dīno Gina Rosie Biagio and all of his extended family and friends.

    candle 6We are deeply saddened at this news and are just finding this out as of tonight. As it turned out, we were on vacation during the week that the services were being held for Gerry or we would have definitely tried to attend and celebrate his life and offer our sincerest condolences. We purchased Gerry and Martha’s long time home in Seven Pines 13 years ago and remained in touch with them by continuing to offer them chestnuts every fall that we collected from the 2 chestnut trees that Gerry planted many years ago. We will definitely miss his smile and enthusiasm for life that was so clearly evident. The fish fry’s during Lent at St John Bosco will not be the same without him.
