Jerry Mitchell Bates Obituary
JERRY MITCHELL BATES 3-2-1955 to 1-5-2014 Jerry passed away unexpectedly of lung cancer on Jan. 5, 2014, peacefully, with his family at his side at Loma Linda Hospital. Jerry was born at Loma Linda Hospital in 1955 and lived in Riverside his whole life. He graduated from La Sierra Academy in 1973 and attended Riverside Community College. Jerry decided to follow his fathers' footsteps and work in the family plumbing business, where he eventually took ownership in 1995. He excelled at his work, and the customers he worked for over the years became like family to him. Jerry never thought twice about going out at any and all hours, and changing any plans if a customer needed him. Jerry loved fishing, camping, bowling, and bottle collecting, but most of all spending time with his family. Jerry is survived by his wife of 37 years Julie Bates, and his three children Jason, Kristina, and Kourtney, along with his five grandchildren Joshua, Alexandria, Paige, Ashton, and Kylie. Also survived by his mother Bette; father Fred; brother David; two nephews Luke and Travis, and all his Texas relatives. The Celebration of His Life will be at 4:30 PM Saturday, January 18th at the La Sierra University Alumni Center 11500 Pierce Street Riverside 92505. In lieu of flowers, Jerry would prefer the money go to his youngest daughter Kourtney's college fund. The website is www.youcaring.com, and you type in Kourtney Bates.
