On October, 22, 2019, Jerry Glen Cole, loving husband and father, passed away at the age of 64. Jerry, (also known as Bodine, Ceffus, and Cole – to name a few), was born on March 1, 1955, in Merced, CA, to Glen and Ruby Cole. Jerry spent his life living in Dos Palos, and attended Dos Palos schools. Jerry married the love of his life, Cynthia (Herrera) Cole, in Reno, NV, and they spent 40 years together raising their family in Dos Palos, CA.
Jerry had a passion for his family, friends, fishing and country music. Jerry was a member of several bands. He could be found playing his guitar and singing all over the Western United States, but especially at the Dos Palos Cotton Festival, The Dos Palos Car Show, Eagle Field Drag Races, Los Banos Merced County Fair, and the Firebaugh Cantaloupe Festival. Jerry loved people; he greeted you with a hug, handshake, and his infamous smile. Jerry did not know a stranger: to know him was to be loved by him.

He is survived by his wife, Cynthia, daughter, Crystal, son, Chance, all of Dos Palos, CAand son, Jerry Hewlett of Le Grand, CA.
