Jerald Heaberlin

Jerald Heaberlin, 67, passed away April, 7, 2013, in Knoxville. He was born April 12, 1945, in Knoxville, where he lived all of his life. He graduated with the class of 1965. During high school, he was active in sports, especially track, and worked part-time at Hy-Vee.

Jerald proudly served four years in the U.S. Navy. Most of that time was aboard the U.S.S. Nitro. After his Navy discharge, he cut meat at Hy-Vee in Knoxville for 31 years until his retirement.

In 1972, Jerald married Barbara Butcher in Knoxville, where they continued to reside until his death. They were blessed with two sons, Brad and wife Abby of Columbia, Iowa, and Jeff of Knoxville. They were also blessed with three grandchildren, Cole, Emma, and Drew.

Jerald enjoyed his morning coffee and breakfast groups. After retirement, Jerald enjoyed many winters in Arizona with Barb plus Arizona friends, including a coffee group. He was a member of the Baty Tucker Post 168 of the American Legion for many years and a member of the Draggins Car Club. He could be recognized around town driving his black 1941 Plymouth.
