Jerry Ross Malone was born on April 15, 1938 in Ordway, Colorado to Henry Ross Malone and Myrtle Eudora Clark. His father, Henry passed away shortly after while Jerry was a baby. Myrtle then married his step father John Pete Pelster in 1942, who raised him on the farm in Broken Bow, Nebraska.

Later Jerry and Fay moved to Denver, CO where they adopted their two children, Kenneth Ross Malone in 1964 and Stacie Lorene Malone in 1967. In 1977 Jerry passed the California Real Estate Exam which launched him into a career of buying and selling houses. He planted and owned a Christmas tree farm, then worked for Webb Associates for 10 years, retiring in 1999.
He enjoyed bass and trout fishing and spending time with his grandchildren, attending all their sporting events. He loved working around the house, where he was a master at fixing everything. He always seemed to have the right tool. Dad was always available to help family and friends with their project. He was a great Dad/Pops. He will be greatly missed by all. “We’ll catch up to ya in Heaven.”
