(July 29, 1945 ~ July 4, 2020)
Jerry Littlefield left this world to be with his heavenly family July the 4th at 12:30am. Arrangements will be made at a later date for a memorial service.
Jerry was born in Brownfield July 29, 1945 to Clayton and Opal Littlefield. He lived there until he was drafted into the Army in 1967. In the army he completed training as a paratrooper, a communication expert and served in the honor guard for service men who died in Vietnam.
After his time in the army he returned to Brownfield where he worked for Halliburton. He married Julie Buford in 1971 and they moved to Midland in 1978. In Midland Jerry worked for an independent oil and gas company, Sage Energy. In 1982 he bought land in Erath County and moved to the farm in 1985, there he raised calves and took great pride in his animals and in his land. Jerry loved the farm, he loved the oil field, he loved work, he stated many times, if you lay down when you feel bad you will never get up. He loved people. He was a member of the American Legion and there he also had the privilege of serving with the honor guard.
Jerrys health began to fail after surgery in 2014. A decline in his memory eventuality lead to confinement in a nursing home.
He spoke often of his mother, told stories of his brothers Bruce, Keith and Dennis, he never lost his grin and on good days he joked and seemed to enjoy himself. He was a good man, a happy man. He loved children; he would have made a great Dad.
Jerry was preceded in death by his parents Clayton and Opal Littlefield, two brothers Keith and Dennis, and several Aunts and Uncles.
He is survived by his wife Julie, his brother Bruce Littlefield and wife Colee, two sister- in -laws Jan Littlefield and Betty Lollar, three nephews, six nieces, thirteen great nieces and nephews, and many loving cousins.
