Gerald “Jerry” Allen Stillwell, age 68, went to be with Jesus February 22, 2020 at his home at Mountain Grove, Missouri, surrounded by his family.
Jerry was born June 22, 1951 to Gerald and Julia Stillwell at their home on the family farm south of Mountain Grove. As a teenager, he accepted Jesus as his savior and recently had been attending Pleasant Home Free Will Baptist Church.
He married his high school sweetheart, Brenda Coble, on May 28, 1971. From this union three children were born, Scott, Ty, and Kamber.
Jerry worked as a dairy farmer and was employed at Tindel Mills for 28 years where he made many lifelong friends. More recently he and Brenda raised dogs and enjoyed life on the farm.
He loved fishing for trout and camping. One of his greatest joys was watching his grandkids in all of their many activities, he was their #1 fan.
As much as he loved his family, Jerry loved Jesus more and has passed that legacy down to his kids and grandkids.
Jerry was preceded in death by his father, Gerald Stillwell, and his sister, Shirley Rodgers.
He is survived by his wife of 48 years, Brenda; mother, Julia Stillwell; son, Scott Stillwell and wife Kristi; son, Ty Stillwell; daughter, Kamber Beller and husband; his grandchildren, Taylor Cannon and husband Zach, Nolan Stillwell and wife Grace, Logan Stillwell and wife Kendra, Kaitlen Kelley and husband Cody, Zach Beller and Dausten Luck; his great-grandchildren, Noah and Viola Cannon; his sister, Tabby Unger and husband Matt; sister-in-law, Ilene Woods; brother-in-law, Joe Coble and wife Patti; along with extended family and many, many friends.
