Jerry Lee McQuiston Sr.

April 15, 1935 - March 11, 2013

Jerry Lee McQuiston Sr., 77, Galveston, was welcomed into the arms of his Savior at 6:40 p.m. Monday, March 11, 2013, after fighting a long, hard battle with Alzheimer’s. Jerry was born April 15, 1935 in Kokomo, to Everett and Hazel (Fye) McQuiston. On Jan. 8, 1953, Jerry married his long-time sweetheart, Gloria Brown. They recently celebrated their 60th wedding anniversary.

On Jerry’s 18th birthday, he applied for a job at Delco Radio and was hired immediately. He started as a stock boy, then utility man and then became a supervisor. He enjoyed the fellowship with his workers and hearing of their children’s games and achievements. After 38 ½ years, Jerry retired from Delco Radio at the age of 56.

Being in good health Jerry and Gloria were able to take several cruises and some overseas tours. One in particular was the trip to the Holy Lands. What a joy this was to walk where Jesus walked. Jerry was very active in church work. He was Sunday school superintendent, deacon, treasurer, youth leader and on the Primetimers committee of Bible Baptist Church.

Son, Jerry, and all of the grandchildren were very active in sports, which Jerry and Gloria followed faithfully, until his health failed. He also loved the fact that the entire family knows the Lord and felt God has blessed us beyond belief.

Survivors include his wife, Gloria; a son, Jerry Jr. (Cathy); his daughter, Tammy (Jeff) Keith; his grandchildren, Jesse (Liz) McQuiston and children, Elle and Lucy, Jared (Amy) McQuiston and children Calla and Noah, Tyler (Kelsey) McQuiston and children Max and Cooper, Jonathan (Kayla) Keith, Joshua Keith and Jennifer Keith; half sister, Mary Davis; several nieces and nephews; and with a special thanks to Rick Foust, who faithfully kept in touch with Jerry.

He was preceded in death by his parents; a brother, Ernest McQuiston; a sister, Delena Foust; and two half-brothers, Gilbert and Virgil McQuiston.
