William Gerald Wynne

 

William “Jerry” Wynne, 92, of Shreveport, Louisiana went to rest in Christ on November 3, 2022. He was born on September 4, 1930 to Jesse Herman Wynne and Mae Belle Bowles.

An inurnment will be held on Tuesday, December 6, 2022 at 10:00 a.m. at Rose-Neath Cemetery, 5185 Swan Lake Rd. in Bossier City, Louisiana.

After graduating from Fair Park High School, he went to Centenary College, where he studied accounting and bookkeeping for two years. He secured a job with Arkla Gas Company, where he worked as a Draftsman for over thirty years and later as a Fieldman and Office Manager.

Jerry was a very active member of the Shreveport First Seventh Day Adventist Church.

He helped build the church and the old school, which his children and some of his grandchildren attended. He held various positions in the church, Elder, Head Deacon, Sabbath School Teacher and Sabbath School Superintendent. He was active in most of the church activities, such as Pathfinders, fundraisers, socials and the yearly Ingathering Campaign.

Due to his caring nature, Jerry would visit many nursing homes and sick members during the week. He founded a group called “The Friendship Circle,” where he and fellow members played their guitars accompanying men and women singing praises during the worship service on Sabbath, Hayrides and other social events at church.

Jerry was an avid fisherman and enjoyed hunting. For years, he enjoyed raising a big garden and had beautiful flowers surround his home. His garden and flowers brought him much joy in his life.

Jerry is preceded in death by his first wife, Martha; his brother, Johnny; and his parents, Jesse Herman Wynne and Mae Belle Bowles.

Jerry leaves behind his loving wife, Norma Generoso Wynne; as well as his children and their families, Richard (Molly) Wynne, Deborah (Jim) Shanks, and Susan Deen; his grandchildren, Carissa (Dr. Kenneth Sharp), Wesley Wynne, Ashley (Isaac) Gomez, Lauren (Charles) Hess, and Wynne Deen; and his great-grandchildren, Aiden Sharp, Gavin Sharp, Claire Sharp, Triston Wynne, Liam Gomez and Scarlett Hess.

In lieu of flowers, the family suggests donations may be sent to Shreveport First Seventh Day Adventist Church, 6475 Westport Drive, Shreveport, Louisiana 71129.
