Gerald Jay Milliman II

April 27, 1952 — January 2, 2024

Middleport: Gerald Jay Milliman II, age 71, passed away peacefully on January 2, 2024 at the Niagara Hospice House. He was born April 27, 1952 in the Town of Groveland, NY to the late Gerald Jay (Virginia) Milliman.

Jay was a graduate of Royalton Hartland Central Schools and worked for 13 years at Simonds Steel, 12 years at Packaging Corp of America and retired from Jamestown Container in 1999. He was known as the jokester of the family, life of the party, an outgoing and social butterfly as well. He loved classic cars, often times watching car auctions on the TV, and mowing and snow blowing videos on YouTube when he didn’t have the strength to do it himself. Jay was quite fond of “Duct Tape” and lived up to the saying “Jerry rigged”.

In addition to his parents, he was predeceased by his siblings, Mark and Deborah.

Jay is survived by his loving and devoted wife, Debra Ann (Glena) Milliman who he married in 1972 and spent over 51 married years together. Also surviving are his three daughters; Tiffany Ann (Michael) Williamson, Trisha May (Mike Diel) Milliman, Trinity Jay (Austin) Doepp, grandchildren; Michael Aaron Williamson, Christopher Williamson, Nicholas Williamson, Brooke Williamson, soon to come grandson; Dawson Jay Doepp, his siblings; Timothy Lee Milliman, David Wayne Milliman as well as several loving nieces, nephews and cousins.

A time for family and friends to gather to celebrate Jay’s life will be held at the Bates, Wallace & Heath Funeral Home 38 State St. Middleport, NY 14105 on Saturday, January 6th from 1:00-4:00pm.
