Gerald Ray Curnutt
August 1, 1933 – February 16, 2021
Born into this world on August 1, 1933, welcomed into the loving arms of Jesus on February 16th, 2021. Jerry was born in Kansas City, MO. After completing High School at Northeast High, he worked at a plastics injection company forming the Indian Chief hood ornament for Pontiac cars before being called into service in the Korean War. Serving 3 cruises with the US Navy in the Pacific Theater, he returned to San Diego, and settled into the LA area where he met a beautiful redhead. She became Mrs. Gerald R. Curnutt on August 4, 1957 and both of them claimed their lives really started then. Jerry and Barbara lived in the L.A. area where Jerry worked at General Telephone Company and then they moved to Bothell, WA which was a stretch for Barbara, a Los Angeles city girl through and through. Jerry was a devoted husband and father, and he spent his spare time coaching baseball where he was able to impact the lives of many young men in a positive way as an amazing role model. He transitioned from working at General Telephone to Farmers Insurance where he established the Curnutt Insurance Agency in 1976. He was a very successful Agent creating great relationships with clients until his retirement in 1994. He is preceded in death by his parents, Ralph M. and Lela M. Curnutt and son David.
Jerry is survived by his sons, Brian (Heidi) Curnutt and Marc (Trudi) Curnutt; and his grandchildren, Jordan (Alyssa) Curnutt, Ashlee (Zach) Freeman, Monet (Ryan) Curnutt Zanger and Jack (Kinley Petro) Curnutt.

Jerry was such a joy to care for, always smiling, and nonstop eating. He had a appetite like no one else, and always thanked me for anything that I fixed for him to eat. I enjoyed our late night conversations and getting to know him. Marc , your dad was an amazing man. I was blessed to have the opportunity to care for him. Mary Phillips
