Gerald Laumb Jr., 48, Kasson

Gerald “Jay” Wayne Laumb Jr., 48, of Kasson, passed away surrounded by his family on Tuesday, Nov. 5, 2019 in Rochester.  Jay had fought a long hard battle with brain cancer for the last 12 years.

Jay owned Outdoor Services in Rochester from April 1997 to April 2019. He was an avid Minnesota sports fan. He loved to cheer on the Vikings, Twins, Gophers, his hometown Rushford-Peterson Trojans, and the Kasson-Mantorville KoMet wresting team. He looked forward to deer hunting season with his family in Rushford every year. Above all he loved his children the most and never missed an event.
