Gerald Lynn Shutter, age 82, died on September 17, 2019 after a brief illness.

Jerry was a long-time resident of Azle, Texas and was surrounded by his family at his passing.

Jerry served 20 years in the armed forces, six years as a Marine and fourteen in the Army. He was a Vietnam veteran, where he earned several medals, including the Bronze Star, The Army Commendation Medal, and The Army Commendation Medal (First Oak Leaf Cluster). After retirement, Jerry went on to become a teacher at Tarrant County Junior College, where he helped develop and teach in the Graphic Arts Department. He was also part of the Apprentice Training Program for The Bureau of Engraving and Printing in Ft. Worth. Jerry retired from teaching after 20 years. A lover of John Wayne movies, fishing, and scratch-off lottery tickets, Jerry was happiest when outside on his tractor or playing with grandkids.

Jerry is survived by a wife of 61 years, Nancy, and four children: Debbie (Jim), Cindy (Santos), Paul (Marion), and Amy (Barry). He also leaves behind 11 grandchildren and six great-grandchildren.
