April 28, 1933 - Novem­ber 9, 2017 Jerry H. Lindsey, hus­band of Son­dra Lindsey, passed away peace­fully with fam­ily by his side on Novem­ber 9, 2017. He was born in An­son, Texas on April 28, 1933 to Lester and Della Lindsey. He moved to Shal­lowa­ter, Texas in 1938 where he re­ceived his ed­u­ca­tion. He joined the U.S. Navy Re­serve in 1951, and went on Ac­tive Duty in Fe­bru­ary, 1953. He was aboard the North Hamp­ton 6th Fleet Flag Ship for eigh­teen months, most of the time in the Mediter­ranean, work­ing for the Ex­ec­u­tive Of­fi­cer, and six months as the Chap­lain’s As­sis­tant. Be­ing a farmer’s son, he learned how to put in a good day’s work and en­joy it. He re­turned to the states, and met a lit­tle doll, named Son­dra Gean Bau­cum. They were mar­ried six­teen months later. Jerry was a farmer for ten years in Shal­lowa­ter, Texas. In 1966, they moved to the Yuma, Ari­zona area, with his fam­ily, and home­steaded a 160acre par­cel of farm land in the Well­ton-Mo­hawk farm­ing com­mu­nity. When Jerry wasn’t farm­ing, him and Son­dra loved at­tend­ing their chil­dren’s school ac­tiv­i­ties, as they were a close-knit fam­ily. Prior to re­tir­ing in 2012, Jerry was a com­mer­cial farm and land real es­tate bro­ker for 35 years. Jerry’s final words: “Son­dra and fam­ily will meet with me again when we all get to Heaven.” Jerry is sur­vived by his beloved wife of 61 years, Son­dra, his three chil­dren; Lisa Lindsey, Barry Lindsey (Jackie Parker), and Pam (Ron) Pena; grand­chil­dren Ja­son and Joshua Pena, Matt Lindsey, Ashley (John) Gil­vin, and great grand­chil­dren; Arthur and Char­line Gil­vin. He has nu­mer­ous nieces and neph­ews, two sis­ter-in laws; Eugenia Lindsey, and Edie Lindsey, and a nephew; Mike Lindsey, who was like a brother to him. Jerry is pre­ceded in death by his par­ents, Lester and Della Lindsey, broth­ers; Ken­neth Lindsey, L.W. Lindsey, Larry Lindsey, and nephew, Sam Lindsey. Our fam­ily would like to thank Hos­pice Com­pas­sus for their com­pas­sio nate care they pro­vided Dad, and our en­tire fam­ily. Jerry’s Cel­e­bra­tion of Life will be held on Satur­day, Novem­ber 18th at 1:00 PM, at Morn­ing­side Bap­tist Church, 2900 S. 8th Av­enue Yuma, Ari­zona 85364. In lieu of flow­ers, please feel free to do­nate to one of Jerry’s fa­vorite char­i­ties; the Hu­mane So­ci­ety of Yuma, The Sal­va­tion Army, or Alzheimer’s As­so­ci­a­tion-Desert South­west Chap­ter.
