Jerry Dean McKinney

NORMAN — Jerry Dean McKinney went to be with the Lord on Monday, May 26, 2014. Jerry was born Dec. 25, 1936, to J.D. McKinney and Frankie Lee Miller.

Jerry was a loving husband, father, grandfather and friend to many. He will be greatly missed.

He is survived by his wife of 49 years, Margaret Ann Watson McKinney, of Colorado. Jerry and Margaret were married on April 9, 1965. Jerry is also survived by their two children, Dean Robert McKinney of Oklahoma and Kenya Ann Russell of Colorado. One of Jerry’s greatest joys in life was spending time with his surviving grandchildren Allison McKinney of Texas, Taylor and Colton McKinney of Oklahoma and Austin, Kaylyn and Camden Russell of Colorado.

Jerry graduated high school in Tulsa in 1955. He continued his education, graduating from the School of Architecture at the University of Oklahoma. He went on to work and retire from the Department of Health and Human Services, Public Health Services as an architect. He spent his winters in Norman and the rest of the year in Florissant, Colo.

He was a life-long fan of University of Oklahoma sports and loved to watch games with friends and family. Jerry had many great life stories and met some very interesting people on his journey; he loved sharing these stories with his grandchildren. Jerry’s great stories, love and infectious laugh will be greatly missed by all who knew him.
