Jerry Lynn Siepert

24 décembre 195129 mai 2021

Jerry Lynn Siepert was born in Clifton, Texas, on December 24, 1951, the son of Leon Gustav Siepert and Nelda Anna Siepert. He graduated from Hamilton High School in 1970 and soon after earned a degree in Industrial Arts from Tarleton State University.

Jerry’s success in college was indicative of his no-quit character. He became involved in the powerlifting team and became one of the members that went on to win the 1972 National Powerlifting Championship. Competing against Nebraska University and Michigan State among other colleges the team’s unexpected victory was quite a celebration at Tarleton.

Later when Jerry’s father died unexpectedly, he returned home to take up where his father had left off. He used his father’s and grandfather’s expertise to continue the small farm operation and over time fine-tuned his skills even repairing his own machinery when he could. He understood the necessity of keeping costs down in surviving in the farm industry. For near fifty years he survived and raised a family solely on farming. At the time of his death he still supplied hay to many customers around central Texas.

Jerry made many friends in his business dealings. He was fair in his prices and worked out any discrepancies with fairness and an open mind. People came to trust him and business dealings usually turned into friendships, if only casual ones. Jerry could never conform to life’s urgencies. He took his time and got to know people, listening to their needs and even to their stories. The demanding physical toils of farming never took away his smile.

This short excerpt of Jerry’s life could not come close to describing the man he was. Although not large in stature, his raw determination and unusual physical strength made him a giant. He was the man you truly thought “would never die” as the song goes. But God has taken him now to be among his precious saints. And who can argue with that?

Jerry is survived by his wife of thirty years, Katy, and children Steven and Sidney. Also surviving are his sister, Karen Bennet, and his brother, David Siepert, along with many nieces and nephews. His void cannot be filled but his fate is fixed. No doubt Jerry rests in the hands of God.

To the family of Jerry Siepert:

It has been years since I saw Jerry and we are very sorry for your loss . My grandmother was a Siepert and I remember a Siepert reunion in Hamilton around 1966. It was a good time visiting with the Cousins (David, Karen, Jerry) and Aunts and Uncles.

Randy and Beverly Ickert

I had the pleasure of talking to Jerry at the lumberyard the week before his accident. I had not seen him in decades. He was as kind as I remembered him to always be. I thought about how he always left you with a smile, and he did.
He will be missed by many.
Please accept my deepest condolences.

I remember buying oats from him he always filled the truck. And would meet you with a hand shake and eye to eye contact. He had integrity.

I remember being out there on your farm while visiting Steven and we were always greeted with a smile from both Jerry and Katy. Jerry was a great and hard working man. Wish I could be there for you all.

We have been blessed to know the Siepert Family. Jerry was always the strong, quiet helm. We have many fond memories and rich stories from when our young girls played together on the farm and while Katy provided excellent instruction to our children at Cranfills Gap ISD. We are deeply sorry for your loss.
