Jerry Wayne Lindsay, 63, of Garnett, passed away Tuesday, June 21, 2016, in Warren, Mich.
He was born on July 25, 1952, in Garnett, the son of Emmett Eugene and Dixie Claire (Huggins) Lindsay. Jerry attended elementary school in Bush City, and later graduated from Garnett High School in 1970. After high school, Jerry followed in his father’s footsteps and went to work for Willis Henderson as a truck driver. He worked for other trucking companies through the years. Jerry was also employed by the city of Garnett for ten years and most recently he and his wife Cindy have been driving for B4 Transportation, out of Portland, Oregon.
On Dec. 14, 1974, Jerry married Lucinda (Cindy) Sue Holloman in Parker, along with Cindy’s three young children. Jerry and Cindy made their home in Bush City for the first years of their marriage. After the birth of two more children, the family moved to Parker and Moran, before settling in Garnett.
Jerry’s love was for his family, enjoying time with them. He had an infectious smile and could make anyone smile, even on their worst days.
