OBITUARY - JERRY DEAN KNEEDLER

Jerry Dean KNEEDLER was born August 22, 1949 in Des Moines, Iowa to Cecil KNEEDLER and Inez KNEEDLER and departed this life on December 14, 1999 at his home in Mount Ayr, Iowa.

Jerry spent his younger years living in Shenandoah and Winterset. His family moved to Mount Ayr, Iowa in 1966. He graduated from Mount Ayr Community High School in 1969.

He was married in March of 1977 to Nancy FLEETWOOD in Grant City, Missouri. They had one daughter from this marriage, Jennifer Ann, born December 18, 1978. They were divorced in February 1982. He spent the last 22 years working for the City of Mount Ayr, Iowa.

Jerry spent most of his life being a dedicated worker and a full-time father. He loved to fish, trap and hunt. He was always proud of the day's catch.

On April 12, 1995 Jerry had his first grandchild, Johnathan Alexander HARTFIELD. On March 17, 1997, he had his second grandchild, Jasmine Marie HARTFIELD. He always visited them at their home and just outright spoiled them. He always promised them he would take them fishing one day, but never got the chance.

Jerry was also very proud of serving in VietNam with the United States Army.

Jerry was preceded in death by his father, Cecil Lota KNEEDLER.

Left to cherish his memory are his daughter, Jennifer KNEEDLER of Cainsville, Missouri; his grandchildren, Johnathan and Jasmine of Cainsville, Missouri; his friend, Sally REED and Ron of Des Moines, Iowa; his mother, Inez KNEEDLER of Mount Ayr; three sisters: LaVenia and husband Lyle STUMP of Woodward, Linda and husband Eugene KOHL of Mount Ayr and Judy and husband Eugene DILLENBURG of Mount Ayr; and a brother Cecil Eugene and wife Lettie KNEEDLER of Winterset. He will also be missed by many nieces and nephews, as well as by friends.

Funeral services were held on Friday, December 17, 1999 at the Wilson-Watson & Armstrong Funeral Home in Mount Ayr, Iowa with Pastor Rick HAWKINS officiating. Musical selections were "The Dance" by Garth Brooks and "Butterfly Kisses" by Jeff Carson.

Casketbearers were Ken JONES, Robert STRANGE, Charles WASKE, Kirk GREENMAN, Mike WIMER and Denzel YOUNG. Honorary pallbearers were Bill YOUNG, Mike STORY, James HUFFMAN, Gary TURNER, Gary HENSLEY, Chris KNEEDLER, Dennis HUNTSMAN, Roland BUCK, and Duane GLICK.

Jerry was laid to rest in the Rose Hill Cemetery at Mount Ayr, Iowa with military graveside rites by Ringgold Post #172 American Legion.
