Jerry D. Carson, age 85, passed away peacefully on September 19, 2021, at Pioneer Memorial Rest Home in Mullen, Nebraska. He was born August 30, 1936, to Gerald J. and Mabelle (Siefers) Carson in Alliance, Nebraska. He was the youngest of two children. Jerry graduated from Hyannis High School in 1953 at the age of 16. In 1957, on a dare made by his good friend, Pete Rhode, Jerry met Sharon Porter. They were married October 26, 1958, and made their home on the Hager ranch where Jerry worked as a Ranch Hand. Two children were born to their union—Becky Lynn on July 4, 1960, and Stuart Morgan on July 30, 1962.

Jerry enjoyed his time with family and participating in many weekend ranch rodeos; competing in team roping, calf roping, occasionally bareback riding, team penning, team sorting, and team pulling. Jerry and Sharon also raised greyhounds which raced in various states across the country. After spending many years as a devoted ranch hand Jerry and Sharon retired to North Platte, Nebraska in 2002.

Jerry will be remembered by his strong work ethic, dry sense of humor, knack for the best tricks, and always making the best of every situation. Jerry's pride in being a hard working sand hills cowboy was an honor to witness.

Left to cherish Jerry's memory is Sharon, his loving wife of 62 years, daughter Becky Carson, and son Stuart (Leah) Carson, four grandchildren; Ashley (Tim) Dowhower, Ben Carson (fiancé Haley Porter), Jera Smith (fiancé Tyler Werner), and Page (Tyler) Dahlgren, two great-grandchildren; Molly Carson and Owen Smith. Jerry is also survived by his sister Lois Hampton, numerous nieces, nephews, cousins, and friends. Jerry was preceded in death by his parents Gerald and Mabelle Carson, his in-laws Carroll (Bud) and Lucille Porter, brother-in-law Kenneth Hampton, and nephew Ralph Hampton.
