Obituary of Jerry Wayne Longmire

Jerry Wayne Longmire, age73, passed away peacefully on January 18, 2020 surrounded by his devoted wife Jean (nee Richartz) of 45 years and family members. He was the son of the late Alvin and Rica Longmire. Also predeceased by his siblings, Kyle, Jack, Henry, David, Sis, and Donna. He is survived by several nieces and nephews, and his sister-in-laws, Barbara Campanella, Barbara Longmire, and Alice Longmire. Jerry's family moved from La Follette, TN to Stratford where he was a resident for over 60 years. Jerry served his country for four years in the US Navy in Vietnam as a mechanic for our jet fighter planes. He worked for Verizon as a valuable employee in the transportation unit for over 45 years. He never missed a day of work and had many friends. Jerry was always smiling and always available to help his fellow man every day of his life. His smile and caring personality lit up our lives and he will be missed by his family, friends, and co-workers. After all, he often told us he was the "prettiest person on Earth" and those who loved him believed that to be true.
