Gerald "Jerry" McCune was called home by our Heavenly Father on November 8, 2017. Jerry was born December 31, 1942 in Quincy, Illinois to Lynn and Emma Kretzer McCune. He graduated from Quincy High School in 1961 and in 1963 he graduated from David Ranken Trade School in St. Louis, Missouri.

He married Sandra "Sue" Howlett in 1962 at Grandview Baptist Church in Quincy, Illinois by the Rev. Paul Keeler. He started at Motorola in 1963 and worked the Quincy plant until it closed in 1976. The family moved to Seguin, Texas in 1976 and Jerry continued working for Motorola. In 2001 he retired after 37 years with Motorola. Jerry had enjoyed going for coffee on Monday afternoons at the Dairy Queen with good friends. He was a member of Cross Church and a past member of the Church Council.
