Jerry was born on July 25th, 1948. He married the love of his life, Donna Robertson, in June of 1966. They had four children, whom he loved fiercely. He owned and ran Leo’s Clothing in Enumclaw for 25 years and was the current owner of Big J’s Sporting Goods in Orting. Although he is gone, Jerry’s presence at Big J’s will continue to be felt by his customers and employees who loved him dearly.
Jerry was best known for his love and devotion to his family. His love for his family was unconditional and undying. No matter what, he put his family first and made sure they were always taken care of, even up until the very end of his life. Jerry lived life to its fullest and his hearty, well-known laugh showed just how much he loved life.
He enjoyed playing golf and cribbage, in which he “claimed” to be undefeated. He loved vacations with his family, the beach, the ocean, and sunshine. The best days of Jerry’s life were family vacations in which he was on the beach with a Coca Cola in his hand, listening to John Anderson, soaking up the sun, and organizing his famous cribbage tournaments. He created so many memories that his family will always cherish. Rest in peace beloved Jerry Arnett. Your love will forever shine down on us.
