A celebration of life will be held in honor of Jerry Main, 1 p.m. Sunday, Oct. 7, at the Snoqualmie Eagles.

An account has been set up at the Sno-Falls Credit Union for donations for his family.

Jerry was born in Snoqualmie on July 10, 1952, to Snowball and Caroline Main. He attended Snoqualmie Valley schools and graduated from Mount Si High School, walking down the aisle with the love of his life, Susan Cabe.

He loved fishing and hunting, was a real outdoorsman. He passed that love down to his children and grandkids.

Jerry and Susan married on July 15, 1972. They had three children, Brian (wife Susie) and their three children Austin, Cody, and Mitchell; Staci (husband Sean) with children Sissi and Liam; Jordan, with wife Stepanie and children Noah and Kendall.

He opened the Main Barber Shop in Snoqualmie in October of 1999. He loved the relationships that he made with his customers and cherished their friendships. He was a gentle man who could be counted on anytime anyone needed help.

He and Susan recently celebrated their 40th anniversary and were very proud of that.

"The most important thing in his life was his family and made sure that all was right with all of us," says Susan Main.

He was a volunteer fireman for Snoqulamie for 15 years and organized Snoqualmie Days, at the time when the carnival came to town.
