Beloved father, cherished grandfather, great-grandfather and treasured uncle, Jerry Wayne Richey, age 78, passed away in Marshall, Texas on June 18, 2021. Jerry was born on July 3, 1942 in Gilmer, Texas to Grover Henry Richey and Clarice Gwendolyn (Palmer) Richey.
Jerry is preceded in death by his parents, and his sisters, Billie and Greta. He is survived by his daughters, Tammy Corbell (Kelly) and Sherry Ischy (James); his grandchildren, Adam Corbell, Patrick Corbell, Kaleigh DeMont, Kelsey DeMont and Kassidy DeMont; his great-grandchildren, Adeline, Addison, Samuel, Kayden, and one on the way, Hudson; and his nieces, Vickie Senn and Terri Weaver.
Jerry was a salesman in the insurance industry for many years. He was a hard worker, always dependable, was non-judgmental, had a positive attitude and was really funny, with an infectious laugh that will be remembered by all. Jerry always seemed content and happy and loved his family fiercely, always putting them first. He enjoyed days just sitting outside on the porch. Family get-togethers were cherished and he loved laughing and visiting with friends and family. Jerry loved going to the deer lease with his best friends. He also enjoyed fishing, playing cards and dominoes…and loved a good steak and a good cold beer. Jerry was truly loved and will be deeply missed by all who were blessed to know and love him.
A Memorial Service will be held for Jerry on Monday, June 21, 2021 at 2:00pm at Meadowbrook Funeral Home with Bro. James Runnels officiating. A time of visitation will follow the service. Online condolences may be offered at www.meadowbrookfh.com
