Jerry A. Dell

February 26, 1942 — March 23, 2023

Jerry A. Dell, 81 of Goldsmith passed quietly at 9:15 a.m. on Thursday, March 23, 2023 at Witham Hospital in Lebanon. He was born in Tipton, Indiana on February 26, 1942 to Clifford Fern & Margaret Elizabeth (Lee) Dell. On February 21, 1964 he married Karen Bauer. The couple enjoyed 59 years of marriage together before Jerry’s passing.

Jerry proudly served in the United States Army for six years. He drove a semi for over 50 years before retiring and going to work for the Indiana Department of Transportation. Jerry retired from the state in 2008. He was an avid sports enthusiast and enjoyed pitching horseshoes for many years. Matter of fact he was very good at pitching horseshoes and was the AHPA State Champion for four years in a row. When the weather was nice, and there were no sporting events or horseshoe to be tossed, Jerry loved to ride his motorcycle.

Jerry had a deep love for his family. All of Jerry’s boys played sports, and as the grandkids got older they also played sports. Jerry made it a point to be in the stands cheering on all of his family when possible. He was very proud of his boys and their families.

Jerry is survived by his wife, Karen; three sons, Brian Dell and wife Kathy of Tipton, Todd Dell and wife Stacie of Tetersburg, Kyle Dell and wife Stephanie of Tipton; eight grandchildren, Nathan, Adam, McKayla, Jeremy, Jamey, Amber, Andrea, and Brody; along with five great-grandchildren, Kaidan, Kennedy, Raelynn, Hadleigh, and Tinzleigh with another on the way in June and step grandchildren, Emily McCollum, Austin McCollum, and Andrew White. Jerry was the last living sibling; he was preceded in death by 12 siblings, Norma, William, Alice, Leatrice, Richard, Treva, Billie Jo, Roy, Neita, Harry, Linda, and Markitta.
