February 4, 1952 ˜ February 3, 2020

Jerrold ”Jerry” David Dick, 67, was born to Hazel and Clarence Dick on February 4, 1952. Jerry was a lifetime resident of Vancouver, WA until his recent retirement and move to Garfield, WA. After a massive heart attack and months of complications, Jerry passed into the arms of Jesus on February 3, 2020. Jerry’s son, Andrew, was at his side.
Jerry had a special love for sports. He dedicated 18 years to coaching Alcoa Little League and being a board member. Golfing was also an option unless his Oregon State University Beavers were playing. He was an enthusiastic fan.
Jerry is survived by his wife of 33 years, Chris; sons, Rob Colson and Andrew Colson; daughter, Mindy Hicks; sister, Jeanne Browitt; brothers, Don Vandetta and Ken Dick; and close friends, Paul and Kathy White. Jerry was a loving grandfather and always enjoyed being with his grandchildren, Duncan, Drew, Devany, Donovan, Noah, Lucas, Sabra, and Cora.
The family would like to thank everyone for the many prayers and thoughtful acts of kindness extended during this difficult time.
A memorial service for Jerry will be held Saturday, February 29th, 2020, 10:00 a.m. at Memorial Lutheran Church, 2700 E. 28th Street, Vancouver, WA 98661. A light lunch following.

Chris, so sad to hear about Jerrold's passing. He was a special person that I will always remember. I first met "Jerry" in the seventh grade, I was sitting at a cafeteria table alone eating my lunch when he came over an introduced himself and asked if he could join me. He just had a way for making friends. Our condolences to you and your family. Glenn Cramer

Jerry and my sons Buz and Jeff were neighbors and best buddies in the early 1960s. He was almost like "my kid" qnd we loved hi dearly. What a sweetheart, The last time I saw him was when Buz died in an accident. Jerry came to be with us. It was the most wonderful visit. No talk. Our communication was spiritual and I will never forget it. I am sorry we lived in Vancouver all these years and lost touch with him. Rest in God's love.

I met Jerry later in my life but he always made me feel like we had known each other all of our lives. His friendliness and love of sports were unsurpassed. I'll treasure my memories.
