Jerry Don Gaston age 61 of rural Coffeyville passed away on August 2, 2021 at Saint Francis in Tulsa, OK.
Jerry was born December 21, 1959 in Enid, OK to Don and Leola (Baldwin) Gaston. As a member of a military family, Jerry called many places home. He was a graduate of Caney Valley High School and Tulsa Welding School. He worked many different places as a welder. He also worked for Dixon Industries and was most recently a pumper for RedBud Oil and Gas Jerry met Beverly Humphrey almost like she fell out of the sky. The couple knew they were perfect for each other and made their commitment official on July 24, 1982. They were blessed with two sons and a daughter. Jerry enjoyed spending his time with whatever activity his family was doing. He liked fishing, his dogs, working his cattle, Nebraska football, and traveling when he could actually get away. Jerry will be remembered for his orneriness, his love of teasing and giving people a hard time, how boisterous he was, and his contagious, raspy laugh. Above all, his family was the center and highlight of his life. He made sure to never miss a Friday date night with Beverly or Sunday family dinner.
Jerry’s legacy will live on with his wife, Beverly, son Jeremy Gaston and wife Amber, son Justin Gaston and wife Megan, daughter Brooke McClure and husband Clint, and eight grandchildren, Jacen Gaston, Jevin Gaston, Marlee McClure, Lincoln Gaston, Jett Gaston, Noah McClure, Colton Gaston, and Oliva McClure.
He now rests with his parents, brother Terry Gaston, and sister Beverly Freeman.
