Jerry was preceded in death by his parents, Leonard and Laura Longmire, and his brother Tom and a life-long friend, Pat Simmons.

Jerry was a graduate of Naches High School. Jerry lived most of his life in the upper Yakima valley, farming the family farm in the Wenas. He was known for the bands of sheep he tended over the years, quality farm products and hard work helping neighbors and relatives. Jerry was the great-great-grandson of Washington pioneer James Longmire. Jerry loved fishing with his family and his friend Mel White. Jerry loved animals, especially his many dogs and horses.

Special thanks to his good friend Mel and caregivers, Debbie and Amy, and to his hospice nurse, Mary.
