Jerry Lynn Sampsel


Jerry Lynn Sampsel 62, passed away peacefully at his home Monday, February 01, 2021 surrounded by friends who loved him dearly.

He was preceded in death by his parents Dennis and Catherine Sampsel.  He is survived by his three children, Brandon Michael, Sara Danielle (Robert Miller), and Gabrielle Anne; grandson Connor Riley; sister Rhonda Smith (Kenneth Smith), and brothers Chuck Sampsel (Lori Sampsel), and Dennis Sampsel (Peggy Sampsel); and many nieces and nephews.

Jerry loved his gardening, listening to Cher, and spending time with friends and family.  He hated the sand but loved the sound of the ocean.

Most of all he loved and cherished his kids.  There wasn’t a thing he would not do for them.  They were his entire world!

Jerry will always be remembered as a kindhearted, giving, loving, and amazing man. He will be forever missed.

Fly high dad, this isn’t goodbye, it’s see you later!

We love you IN GODS TIME!!!

    Big Daddy and I were partners in crime for many years especially when we were neighbors. I have so many truly Hilarious stories......the lady named Jean who lived across the street from him in Wilmot. She was very hard of hearing . He would wave and yell "Feminine hi Jean"!!!!! He called Sarah Maude. He would say to my youngest.....what doesn't pay the rent Erik? The reply was the same....Love! Unless you're a hooker. He loved his family, he could make me laugh like no other.

    I will miss you man. We had good times together. I always loved picking on your seltzer beer. We really started being friends when I would take you to work, I'm not much of a talker, but you always had things to say. You will be dearly missed.
