Jerry Raymond Ogden, 85, of East Falmouth died June 8.

He was born in Clearfield, Pennsylvania, to Harold and Iva Ogden.

After he graduated from St. Francis High School, he enlisted and served for four years in the US Air Force.

Mr. Ogden had a 36-year career as a machinist/group leader for Pratt & Whitney of East Hartford, Connecticut. He was a former resident of Enfield, Connecticut.
