— JEROME “JERRY” SICKING

MUENSTER — A mass of Christian burial for Jerome “Jerry” Sicking, age 73, of Muenster, was held at 10 a.m. Thursday, July 11, 2013, at Sacred Heart Catholic Church in Muenster.

Burial was in Sacred Heart Cemetery.

A rosary was held at 5:30 p.m. Wednesday, July 10, 2013, followed by a vigil at 6 p.m. at the funeral home. Services were officiated by Rev. Ken Robinson and directed by McCoy Funeral Home of Muenster.

Mr. Sicking died in a Dallas hospital on Monday, July 8, 2013.

Jerry, born Sept. 7, 1939, in Muenster, was the eldest of the four children of John William and Eleanor Cecilia Rohmer Sicking. The family lived on a farm south of Myra. At age 5, Jerry was operating a tractor and he continued helping his father farm until they opened a tractor business in Gainesville. Jerry continued farming part-time while being a mechanic at Sicking Tractor Co. He retired from Peterbilt after more than 20 years of working in the fabrication shop.

Jerry had attended St. Mary’s School in Gainesville for three years, then Sacred Heart through the eighth grade and then completed high school at Muenster Public School. He then attended night school at Cooke County College for two years.

Jerry and Evelyn Leona Flusche were married at Sacred Heart Catholic Church on July 16, 1966. They were the parents of two sons and a daughter.

Jerry was a member of Sacred Heart Church, Knights of Columbus, had been an altar boy, member of the 49ers square dance club and was an Avon representative for 23 years. He really enjoyed life, spending time with his family and friends. He liked collecting coins, restoring farm equipment and tinkering with the family automobile.

Jerry also enjoyed gardening and working his booth at various trade days. He was a great family man, always being concerned with the welfare of his children and grandchildren. He displayed respect and kindness to everyone he met and never met a stranger.

Jerry will be greatly missed!

Jerry is survived by his daughter, Sherilyn Sicking of Arlington; sons, Michael Sicking of Waco and Darwin and wife Juliane Sicking of Durant, Okla.; brothers, David and wife Rose of Gainesville and Kenneth Sicking of Myra; grandchildren, Danielle, Haylee and Noah Sicking, Robert Scruggs, Brandi Balke and Ashley Trieder; and three great-grandchildren.

He was preceded in death by his wife, Evelyn; a granddaughter, Kayla Gabrille Sicking; and parents, John William and Eleanor Cecilia Rohmer Sicking; and a brother, Gene Sicking.

The family requests memorials be made to the Muenster Knights of Columbus.                                             ADV.
