Jerry Putman, 78, Colorado City, passed away at the Mitchell County Hospital in Colorado City on Sunday, October 28, 2018 with his loving family by his side. Jerry was born on June 25, 1940 in McCamey Texas to A.C. and Ruby Self Putman. Jerry was a graduate of Westbrook ISD’s class of 1958 and a veteran of the United States Air Force. He spent many years working as an insurance agent but was a rancher and cowboy at heart. He loved tending to his cattle and horses and in his spare time would flip ranches. He was the type of man that believed in the saying of love your God, you Country, and your Family and he was very patriotic. He spent a lot of time volunteering for his church. He enjoyed busing the kids to and from church, and going with the ladies from the church to the nursing home to sing to the residents and lift their spirits. For those wondering his favorite color was blue as that was the color worn by his favorite teams; The Westbrook Wildcats which he was proud to be a member of their Basketball team, the Dallas Mavericks, the Dallas Cowboys, and the Texas Rangers. When Jerry wasn’t tending to his animals he could be seen enjoying a sporting event that his grandchildren were playing in, catching a game one of his favorite teams was playing in or watching rodeos or bull riding. He will be truly missed by all who knew and loved him. Jerry is survived by his three daughters; Lisa Cain Cozart and husband Dwayne Cozart of Arlington, Sherry Terry of Westbrook, and Tami Barton and husband Ty of Argyle, by his grandchildren Dakota, Ashley, Jocelynn, Austin, Paige, Corbin, Rylea, Caiden, Bryce, Alec, Seth, and Zoe, and by his great-grandchildren Christian and Raven, and by his life-long friend and former wife Winnie Putman. He is also survived by his sisters Brenda Pruitt of Snyder, Marie Brown and husband Jimmy of Colorado Springs, Colorado, Janie Watson and husband Les of Colorado City, and Carolyn Rankin and husband Gene of Snyder, as well as by several nieces, nephews, and dear friends. A funeral for Jerry will be held at the Westbrook First Baptist Church on Thursday, November 1st at 2 pm with Pastor Paul Smith officiating, burial will follow in the Colorado City Cemetery. The family will be present to receive friends on Wednesday, October 31st from 6-8pm at Kiker Seale Funeral Home.
