Jerry Foster Westmoreland

(January 28, 1935 – July 03, 2018)

U.S. VeteranVisitation for Jerry will be Thursday night from 6 to 8 in Harrell Memorial Chapel.
His funeral service will be 11:30 A.M. Friday, July 6th in the Chapel with burial to follow at Siloam Cemetery.

After graduating from Antelope High School, Jerry traveled to Amarillo and worked as a ranch hand.

In September of 1958, he joined the Army, training in Illinois and spent the remainder of his term in Germany as a Medical Corpsman & hospital attendant.

Upon returning to Dublin, from the service, he married Norma Jean Sharp on October 20, 1960.

Jerry worked as a ranch foreman for Coburn’s Lightning C Ranch and carried many wonderful memories of his days there.

He went on to be a truck driver, heavy equipment operator, a six-year employee of Dublin Dr. Pepper and retired after many years as a meat processor at Dublin Zero Locker.

He was an avid outdoorsman, spending many days camping & hunting with friends and family. Jerry could skin a deer in a blink of an eye! Fishing was his passion and he bought his “dream boat” in 2003 where he pulled catfish from the waters of Proctor Lake to the Grand Lakes of Oklahoma.

Jerry leaves behind his brother-in-law – Norman Sharp of Dublin, his sister-in-law – Bobbye Westmoreland of Gustine, and numerous cousins, other relatives & friends.

Memorials in his name may be made to the Siloam Cemetery Association.
