Jerry was well known for his honesty, kindness and quick wit. Anyone associated with the title insurance industry beginning in the 1960s until the early 2000s would quickly tell you he was one of the best abstractors and closers of his time. He started his title insurance career with being a delivery guy for Rattikin Title Company, advancing up the ranks from abstracting to closing homes and multi-million dollar commercial transactions with Guardian Title Company and First Land Title Company in Grapevine, Burleson and Fort Worth. He married Debbie Denton in 1984 and they started their own title company, Wise County Title Company in 1987 in Decatur, Wise County, Texas. In 2003 they sold Wise County Title to a group of their employees and retired to their farm south of Bridgeport where they had lived since 1988. Jerry was happiest farming and ranching and when he was on his tractor or riding his four-wheeler or ranger around his place. He dearly loved and cherished his two daughters Kelly and Kristi. He would quickly tell anyone they were his pride and joy. He idolized his two grandchildren Jesse and Mandy. They were in all ways perfect to him. He was an avid hunter and fisherman. There were several of Jerry and his friends having a deer lease near Stephenville for thirty-plus years, which many stories could be and have been told of the times they had and the ‘ones that got away’. He looked forward every year to the annual dove hunt in Dickens County, just outside of Spur. Jerry is preceded in death by his parents Ulysses and Ruby (Dillingham) Hearrell, brothers Raymond and Ronnie, and his sister Linda. Jerry is survived by his wife of 31 years, Debbie Hearrell of Bridgeport; daughter Kelly Olson and husband Dan of Walnut Springs, and daughter Kristi Hearrell of Granbury; grandson Jesse Olson and wife Bethany of Weatherford; granddaughter Mandy O’Hearn and husband Joe of Walnut Springs; three great-grandchildren Karson & Kase O’Hearn, and Gracelyn Olson; sisters Neoma Burk and Wanda Stephens of Van Alstyne; brothers Lissie and Alan Hearrell; and sisters Annette Tolbert, Penny Tolbert, Kim Reagan, Mary Lou Nichols, Charles Hearrell, and Flora Ann Fink, all of Oklahoma.
