Jerry Dale Lindsey, 64, of Ocala, Florida passed away on Tuesday July 20,2021 at 2:50am at Cates Hospice House in Ocala, Florida.
Jerry, who was known to family and friends as Jerry Dale or JD was born in Wood River, Illinois to Carter and Helen Lindsey on August 26, 1956. Jerry was a lover of music and would listen with his headphones to hours of The Beatles and Johnny Cash. He loved dancing with his sissy, Mary, and would cry at his favorite slow songs. Jerry was full of spitfire, always hollering for something. He enjoyed watching NASCAR, his favorite driver being Dale Earnhart. One of his hobbies was bowling with his brother Jim with the We Who Care organization of Ocala. In his later years Jerry loved going out daily to get his french fries and take drives in the car looking for bears in the woods. He loved stuffed animals, his dog Bullet and all his nieces and nephews who he always had a kiss for when they came to visit. Jerry will be especially missed by his brother Jimbo who was so often confused as his twin but one would expect that from these two who shared the same fate in life but have loved each other immensely and been together their entire lives. Until they meet again.
Jerry is survived by his sister, Mary Lee Lindsey, his brother ,Jimmy Lindsey, niece Kelly Paradiso, nephews, Kevin Morris and Michael Morris, as well as great-nephews and nieces, Noah, Carter, and Roman Paradiso, Mia Morris and Spence Morris, all of Ocala, FL and multiple cousins. He was preceded in death by a sister Elaine Fay and a brother Thomas Martin Walker.
Funeral service will be held at Roberts of Ocala Funerals and Cremations on Friday July 23, 2021 at 11am. Burial will follow at Anthony Cemetery in Anthony, Florida.
