Jerry Kester Linder of Winston-Salem passed away Tuesday, October 23, 2018, at Trellis Supportive Care Center in Winston-Salem at the age of 80. He was born July 11, 1938, in Darke County, Ohio, near the village of Bradford. Preceding him in death were his parents, Gilbert and Clara June Kester Linder, and two brothers, Jack and Harvey Linder.

As one who always appreciated the outdoors, Jerry had fond memories of growing up on the farm and always enjoyed farming. He retired from the Metropolitan School District of Lawrence Township (Indianapolis) where he worked as a groundskeeper. He was a devoted NASCAR fan and Kyle Busch was his favorite driver. Recalling days gone by, he and Sandra had a great time touring in various states on his motorcycle. Throughout his life, he had great wit and loved to tease his family and friends. He never lost his playful banter. He was of the Lutheran faith and a member of St. John’s Lutheran Church in Winston-Salem.

His memory will be cherished by his wife of 62 years, Sandra Elaine Netzley Linder of the home; one son, Craig Alan Linder and wife, Jeannine, of Harmony; two brothers, Larry Joe Linder (Shirley Ann) and Randy Rex Linder, both of Greenville, OH; a brother-in-law, Lynn Netzley; sisters-in-law, Shirley and Gail Linder and Earline Morris; two grandchildren, Amy Speckin (Michael Jones) and Adam Linder; two great grandchildren, Alex and Aubrey Speckin; plus a number of nieces and nephews, cousins and numerous friends in Greenville (OH), Indianapolis (IN) and Winston-Salem.

The family will host a memorial service on Saturday, November 17, at 2:30 PM at St. John’s Lutheran Church with Pastor Tom Clocker officiating.

In lieu of flowers, the family suggests donations in Jerry’s memory be directed to either Trellis Supportive Care, 101 Hospice Ln., Winston-Salem, NC 27103, or to St. John’s Lutheran Church, 2415 Silas Creek Pkwy., Winston-Salem, NC 27103.

We are so sorry for your loss. We have only been neighbors with you for the past couple of years but enjoyed our short time with you and enjoyed the short visits as you would go by on your walks and later with the scooter. Jerry was always so friendly that we felt welcome from the very first time we met. If we can do anything to help we are always here for you.
