Jerry C. Furnish, 74, of Lorenzo, went to be with his Lord and Savior on Monday morning, February 20, 2023.  Jerry was born on June 5, 1948, in Madison, Jefferson County, Indiana, to the late Jerry Garrett Furnish and Idona A. (Thorneycroft) Furnish.

Jerry met the love of his life, Karin Trask, and they were united in marriage on August 28, 1971, in Uncasville, Connecticut.  They have made their home in Lubbock, Dallas and eventually in Lorenzo.
