Jerry Lee Beasley, a retired Computer Systems Sales Manager and longtime substitute math teacher in Granbury High School, died January 3, 2017 in San Antonio. He was 78.

Jerry was born July 14, 1938 in Ozona, Texas to parents Sam and Nola Beasley.

His three children and their spouses survive him: daughter Karen and Craig Taliaferro of San Antonio; daughter LeeAnn and Jeb Bauer of Refugio, Texas ; son Wade and Jennifer Beasley of Dallas. Six grandchildren: Austin Taliaferro, Jimmy Bauer, Cecilia Bauer, Zachary Beasley, Ryan Beasley, and Nathan Beasley and two great-grandchildren.
