January 28, 1944 - November 28, 2019
Born in Caddo, Oklahoma
Resided in Salinas, California
He was the fifth child, and third son of Walter and Mary (Ellis) McGee. He joins his twin sister Judith Ann Bacorn, and brothers, Walter and Johnny McGee. His family relocated to Fresno, CA in 1947, where he spent the majority of his young life. At the very tender age of 10, he survived a bout of Valley Fever.
He went on to meet and marry his future wife and mother of his two daughters. They spent their lives in various locations throughout California due to his 30+ year tenure with Tanimura & Antle Inc. They retired to Smith Station, AL then relocated back to Salinas, CA. Jerry was a jack-of-all-trades that was instilled in him by his father. He was known as a determined hard-working man that never missed a day of work, even after he was diagnosed with Lou Gehrig's Disease; he did not let this stop his work ethics and he continued to be disciplined until the day he was called home. Jerry was also a proud descendent of the Choctaw Nation of Oklahoma, and Cherokee Tribe which showed in his extensive collection of Native American antiquities, guns and knives. In his pastime, he enjoyed watching old westerns, family shows with his wife, and football, especially his Green Bay Packers.
He is survived by his beloved wife, Susan McGee of 54 years, two daughters, Debbie McGee-Williams (Melvin Williams, son-in-law), Patty Spellman and sister, Mollie McGee. Along with his grandchildren and great-grandchildren, Debreena McGee (Joseph Momon Jr. & Brionna Momon), DeMour McGee, Christopher Donnay, DeJa Goodman (Jeremiah Goodman & Jayden Goodman), Daniel McGee, and Char Donnay.
A Memorial Service will be held on January 28th, 2020 at 10:30am in Prunedale, CA at Grace Community Church on Paradise Rd. It will be followed by a potluck of finger foods only at the Church.
