Jearrel O. Lanham Obituary
June 7, 1929 - January 30, 2016 Jearrel O. "Jiggs" Lanham Sunrise June 7, 1929 San Diego, Cal to Lillie Mae and Jearrel Lanham Sunset Jan. 30th, 2016 Ventura, Cal Jerry grew up with his parents and brother Jim in Ramona. Popular in high school and a star athlete, he fell in love with lovely Patricia Allen. They married and started a family in 1948, when Linda was born. Michael came next, then Pat, David, Sean and twins Kerry and Kelly. Their parents were blessed in those 11 years, and all the years since, with their cherished kids and a strong, loving family. What a working man Jerry was, and a union man too! He built freeways and other heavy construction projects all over Southern Cal, and was a business agent and District Rep. for the Operating Engineers for 31 years. He lived for many years at the La Posada Mobile Home Park, and was grateful for the caring neighbors he knew there. The Lanham family would like to express our respect, gratitude and affection to the Hernandez family, most especially Grace, Francis and David, con mucho amor. The devotion you poured to him, and the care you showed as he passed over, will stay forever in our memories. Predeceased by his beloved brother Jim, his fine son Kelly and dear granddaughters Brenna and Siobhan. Survived by daughters Linda (Rich) and Kerry (George), and sons Michael, Patrick (Ona), David (Rosemary) and Sean (Chris). Sadly missed by grandchildren Tyler, Diana, Julia, Patricia, Ryan, Ashley, Cael, Fiona and Seamus, and great grandchildren Ashlyn, Cooper, Leo, Jude and Owen. Grace Hernandez has lost a friend of many years also.
