I am not researching this person and I know nothing else about the person. My mother and her father kept newspaper clippings. I am posting them in hopes of helping others.
Thomas Jerald (Jerry) Lackey was born October 16, 1933 at Buffalo and passed away August 16, at the University Medical Center in Little Rock, Arkansas at the age of 43 years, 10 months. He was the son Howard Lackey and Gladys Stowe Lackey.
He was united in marriage with Pauline Snodgrass in 1952. Besides his parents, he is survived by his wife, Pauline, a daughter, Lajeanna, and a son, Steven, all of the home in Fayetteville, Arkansas; his step-mother, Vera Lackey; one brother, Bill of Springfield; two sisters, Pat Lackey of Whittier, California and Gayle Gaunt of Golden City; his parents-in-law, Mr. and Mrs. Ira Snodgrass of Buffalo; two brothers-in-law, two sisters-in-law; five nephews and one niece; one grandniece and a host of friends.
Jerry loved the church, his family and his work. He was saved when he was a young man and was a member of the Reynolds Chapel Missionary Baptist Church. He often quoted these words, " I can tell you the time, I can take you to the place, where the Lord saved me by His wonderful grace." Years later, he was called by the Lord to preach His gospel and was ordained January 20, 1963. He received much pleasure from hearing a testimony from a Christian, especially from one who had just been born again.
Jerry worked at the Ben Franklin Store in Buffalo for 22 years before buying his own stores in Fayetteville, Arkansas and Neosho. During the Korean conflict he served his country in the U.S. Army and received an honorable discharge in 1957.
There will be a vacancy in our home that no one can fill-but our loss is heaven's gain.
