Graveside services for Jerry W. Weisinger, 67, of Diboll, will be held at 11:00 a.m. Monday, March 29, 2021 in the Ryan Chapel Cemetery, with Austin Hearon and Ronnie Herrington officiating.

Jerry was born August 1, 1953 in Lufkin, Texas, the son of Junious D. Weisinger and the late Dorothy M. (Tims) Weisinger. He passed away Saturday, March 27, 2021 at his residence.

At an early age, he worked with his parents at their auto shop, Weisinger Garage. He worked part-time for Morris Air Conditioning as an AC mechanic. He met his wife of 33 years, Sharon, when she brought her car to him and later at a Diboll High School football game. He accomplished getting his Master License for HVAC and Master Electrician License, which he used at Temple-Inland for 20 years. He worked as the Maintenance Supervisor at Diboll ISD for 2 years before retiring in 2017. He enjoyed RC airplanes, RC helicopters, and playing on his guitars. His biggest joy was his garden and fruit trees. He loved his two cats, Ms. Simon and Levi. He raised Ms. Simon from 2 weeks old, so he was especially close to her. He loved his family and enjoyed being with his friends. He went to his heavenly home after fighting a long battle with cancer.
