Jerry Eugene Hames

NORMAN — Jerry Eugene Hames, 74, went home to his Lord on Friday, May 24, 2013.

Memorial service is 11 a.m. Monday at River Oaks Church of the Nazarene, 5620 Black Oak Lane, River Oaks. Interment will be at Dallas-Fort Worth National Cemetery at a later date.

Donations may be made in his memory to the building fund of CrossPoint Nazarene Church, crosspointnaz.org.

Jerry was born in Norman. He graduated from Norman High School where he met his wife of 56 years, Peggy Watt. He received his B.S. from Oklahoma University and his M.S. from the University of Southern California. He was an aeronautical engineer with Lockheed Martin and its predecessor companies in California and Texas until his retirement in 2006. He also held a private pilot’s license. In high school, he was president of the FFA and two-time State Tractor Driver Champion. After college he entered the U.S. Army as an ordinance officer.

His family was the most important thing to him. Together, he and Peggy raised three children, and he was a proud Grandpa to eight grandchildren.

The family would like to thank the caregivers who made his five-year battle with Alzheimer’s, and his final days, easier: the staff on the memory floor at The Stayton, the James L. West Alzheimer Center, Avalon Residential Care Homes, and the wonderful nurses from Angel Hands Hospice.

Jerry was preceded in death by his parents, Clomer “Bud” and Leola Briggs Hames; and his sister, Joyce Hames Grisham.

Survivors: wife, Peggy Watt Hames of Fort Worth; sons, Jerry Scott Hames and wife, Carol, of Fort Worth, and Gregory Alan Hames and wife, Kristin, of Plano; daughter, Tina Hames Duckett and husband, Randy, of Odessa; grandchildren, Jerry Hames and wife, Elizabeth, of Fort Worth, Ryan Hames and wife, Danni, of Arlington, Benjamin Hames and wife, Liz, of Lubbock, William Hames of Fort Worth, Lindsay Hames of Plano, Katie Hames of Richardson, Bailey and Connor Duckett of Odessa; sisters, Sue Wilson of Arlington and Linda Huddleston and husband, Jerry, of Lexington, Okla.; and numerous nieces and nephews.
