Gerald Baptiste Aumand died on April 16, 2021. He was born in on Oct. 20, 1936, in Bellows Falls, Vermont. He was the son of Nora and Baptiste Aumand and the brother of William Aumand. He was an Army veteran who served tours in various locations including Germany and California.

Following his service, he attended Bentley College and embarked on what would ultimately be a very successful business career which culminated in a co-ownership of manufacturing company outside of Boston. He married Shirley Packard in September of 1954 and together they had four daughters, Daria Aumand, Natalie Ahern and her husband Jim Ahern, Larissa Aumand and Alicia Pantaleo.

He was the grandfather of Patrick, Katie, Molly and Rory Ahern and Hayden and Samantha Pantaleo. He was a kind and loving father and husband and spent many years traveling the world with his wife. Shirley passed away in 2005 and Jerry was lucky enough to meet his second love, Julie Kane.

The two were married in 2007 and Julie’s daughter, Carrie Nash, and her husband, Pete Nash, and two children, Zander and Lucas, became family. Jerry enjoyed years of love and laughter with Julie until her death in 2010. Jerry spent his remaining years in the home he loved in Kennebunk, enjoying his family, friends and neighbors.

Jerry would want to be remembered for the abundance of love he had for his family, his gregarious nature, his ability to make others laugh, and the integrity and honor with which he led his life. A celebration of life ceremony will be held at a later date.
