Jerry Dean Jacobs

1943 to 2015


Jerry Dean Jacobs was born March 28, 1943, in Abilene, TX to Russell and Hilda (Schubarth) Jacobs. He was cured of his illness and began his adventures in Heaven on Oct. 22, 2015.

Jerry was raised in Potter by the Walter Hilpert family where he learned to love farm life. He attended Potter High School and following graduation joined the Marine Corps, serving his country in the Vietnam War.

After returning from Vietnam, he married Dianna Hinrichs of Gurley. They had four children Deanna, Michelle, Michael and Megan.

Jerry attended Northwestern University School of Medicine in Chicago, obtaining his degree in Physical Therapy. In 1977, the family settled in New Mexico where they raised their family.

After running a successful private physical therapy practice in Clovis, N.M. for nearly 20 years, Jerry retired to his much loved farm near Durant, Okla. where he raised goats, cattle and donkeys. The farm animals and his Great Pyrenees dogs were enjoyed by the entire family. The highlight for Jerry in his later years was teaching his grandchildren about nature and animals on his land.

Jerry is survived by his special friend, Nancy Good, two daughters Michelle and Megan, three grandchildren Kate, Anna and Ben, and two siblings Sandy Jacobs, and Gary Jacobs. He was preceded in death by his children Deanna and Michael.
