In Loving Memory

Billington, Jerry Lee “J.B.”

July 15, 1945 - February 7, 2024

Jerry Lee Billington of Imperial Missouri passed away on February 7, 2024 at the age of 78.
He was born July 15, 1945 in Green Castle, Missouri.

Mr. Billington proudly served in the US Navy during the Vietnam war as a flight deck director on the USS Bennington. After serving our country, Jerry went to work for Pacific Bell as a line supervisor in California. After 20 years he took early retirement and returned to Missouri. Not quite ready to retire yet, Jerry started driving a truck over the road where he enjoyed seeing the country.

Jerry is survived by his loving wife, Kathy (nee Gerstner); two sons Daniel (Missy) Billington and Brian (Christina) Billington; grandsons Jayce Michael, Erich, Kyle, Nick, Andrew and Tommy; granddaughters Brittany and Emily Rose; brother Larry; and many nieces and nephews that he loved dearly.

Jerry was preceded to heaven by his parents Edgar and Ellen, one sister, five brothers and his best friend and brother-in-law, Jerry “Gerst” Gerstner.

JB was an animal lover, therefore,  in lieu of flowers the family would appreciate donations to:
