Gerald L (Jerry) Plato Sr.
Jerry was 58 when he tragically lost his life due to a senseless car accident.
He was an easy going, bigger than life personality that loved to joke and make people laugh. He loved traveling to Disneyland, Las Vegas, and the beach. One of his greatest joys was Christmas time and dressing up as Santa. One of his favorite pastimes was fishing with his best friend Shannon.
Jerry’s truest love was his family! He is preceded in death by his parents Katherine Fleger & Randy Krout Sr. He is survived by his Wife of 23 years Sheila Plato at home, His brothers William Fleger of Vancouver and Brian Fleger of Washougal. His 4 children, Crystal Plato and partner Shawn Quarles of Washougal, Gerald Plato Jr & wife Nickole of Camas, Blayke Franklin and partner Matt Fisher, and Haley and husband Tony Crippen of Yacolt.

Also survived by Jessica Fredrick and many loved and cherished cousins, adopt a kids and friends.
The love Jerry had for his family can never be replaced. His loss is unexplainable and will be felt deeply forever!
