As mentioned Jerry had "THAT SMILE" It was priceless. I will miss seeing him around Diboll. He always had something funny to say about Mary the love of his life. He made me laugh. May the God who created all things comfort you Mary and the family during this most difficult time.

Jerry’s laugh and love of life made him so much fun to be around. He will be missed by EVERYONE that knew him.

My childhood Saturday nights would not have been the same without him and Mary Alice coming over to our house so Jerry, George and Daddy (Sometimes with Gaylon and Troy) could play cards and mainly shoot the bull while me and Mama and Mary Alice watched “Love Boat” and “Fantasy Island” . . .

Jerry always brought joy. I can still hear them in there cutting up and my daddy’s laugh at the things Jerry would talk about. What sweet memories! They have now all passed away and they all put their trust in our savior Jesus Christ. So their joy is complete. Praise God!

We will always remember Jerry Mitchell but have blessed assurance that if we also have Jesus as our LORD that we will see Jerry again and what a glorious day it will be.

Uncle Jerry and Aunt Mary always helped out family in need. I lived with them in my later teenage years and They helped shape me to the person I am today. Uncle Jerry showed me how to work hard, laugh often and love everyone. When I got home from school and UJ had come home from work, we picked on each other until Aunt Mary came home. He always had a little Debbie snack and coke. He often appeared out of nowhere and said, “boo”. I always jumped. I never was able to get him back. That was Uncle Jerry, the ageless kid at heart. Whenever I heard a new joke, he was the one I couldn’t wait to tell.
One Halloween I had a date knock at the door. Uncle Jerry answered and said, “Aren’t you too big to be trick or treating?” The guy was quite tall and when I returned from the date, there was a step stool in front of the door. I knew UJ did it so I could reach to kiss the date. But it wasn’t a very good one and when we got to the door, the guy asked why there was a stool there. I quickly pushed it away and went in. Uncle Jerry was in his recliner cracking up. I had to laugh too because he got me again!

Please accept my deepest sympathy, Jerry was such a sweet person. Some of my best memories are of my years in grammar and junior high with Jerry. My family moved from Diboll during the middle of the tenth grade, and I missed growing up with the rest of our Diboll gang. He will be missed, God bless you all.

Lots of memories, lots of memories! From vacations to hunting, fishing and many other memories! Such a great friend, and brother-in-law!
One is "Donald Duck" - Jerry could sound just like Donald Duck!
He always teased the nieces about "it snowing outside", sometimes done in his "Donald Duck" voice.
Thank you Jerry for all the memories!
We were big buddies and I will miss you tremendously!
Jesus was ready for Jerry and He is ready for me too!
Love you Jerry!
