Gerald (Jerry) Martin Romain
April 4, 1944 – January 26, 2017

Jerry Romain, a 30-year Tiburon resident, passed away peacefully on January 26, 2017, surrounded by family.

Born in Minneapolis, Minnesota, and raised in Denver, Colorado, Jerry had an avid curiosity for understanding how things worked. By the age of 12, he and his brother, Tommy, had figured out how to rewire their house.

Jerry later relocated to the San Francisco Bay Area, where he served in the U.S. Army. He started working for IBM in 1966, when the first computers were being built. After a 26-year tenure at IBM, Jerry continued his technology career and became a general contractor. He could build and fix just about anything, and helped countless people throughout his life with this unique skill. Jerry was a giving man whose biggest pride was to help people through these tangible efforts.

Jerry was active in the community, a proud member of the Marin Tip Club and a volunteer at the Tiburon Railroad & Ferry Depot Museum. He enjoyed spending time in Maui with family and friends, and could spend hours watching the ocean. He was an excellent chef and loved to cook for his family.

Jerry is survived by his loving wife of 41 years, Barbara Bennett (Romain), MD. He is also survived by his children Michael (Sibrina) Romain and Laura (Brian) Jacobs; his grandchildren Kylie, Nolan, Alana and Griffin; and his sister, Renee Wynn. He was preceded in death by his parents, Martin and Loraine Romain, and his brother, Tommy Romain.

A celebration of Jerry's life will be held on Sunday, February 26, 2017, from 3-5:30 pm at the Mill Valley Recreation Center, 180 Camino Alto.
In lieu of flowers, memorial donations may be made to the charity of your choice.
