Jerry Ransdell

Jerry L. Ransdell, age 72, of Mesquite, Nevada, joined his “Heavenly Father” on Sept. 22, 2017, after years of valiantly fighting cancer. He stayed strong throughout the battle and never complained.

Jerry was born on Sept. 17, 1945 in Red Lodge, Montana, to Pierina Boggio Phillips. Jerry met his wife, Karen L. (Swope) Ransdell in Las Vegas, Nevada, and they wed on Dec. 1, 1984.

Jerry had a successful career in Real Estate, but his passion was golf. He was a long-time member at the Oasis Golf Course and golfed in many Senior Olympics. He was an exceptional athlete, competing in bowling, softball, javelin, and other track and field events. Jerry anchored the 1962 and 1963 State Champion Track team with his javelin throws. Those close to him also knew Jerry was an excellent cook, and he enjoyed improvising to come up with his own recipes.

Jerry is survived by his mother, Pierina Phillips, wife Karen, sons Steven J. (Bonnie) Ransdell of Elko, Nevada, and Ryan C. Yost of Mesquite, Nevada. Also he is survived by his brothers, J. Richard (Donna) Ransdell; Jim Ransdell, Bob (Julie) Phillips, Bill (Carla) Phillips, Fred (Joyce) Phillips, Tom Phillips, and his sister Jeannie (Dennis) Purcell. Grandchildren included Karlie (Spencer) Francisco, Jared Ransdell, Aaron Ransdell, Cierra Ethridge, Mason Yost, and Asher Yost.
