Jerry Lee Daley, 78, returned to his Heavenly Father on January 26, 2020 in Soda Springs, Idaho. Jerry was born on March 16, 1941 in Oxford, Idaho to Ralph Otto and Florence Crossman Daley. The family later moved to Weston, Idaho where Jerry grew up and attended school.
After school Jerry met and married Karen Preece. They spent time in Washington State where three children were born to that union Craig, LuAnn and Allan. They were later divorced. Some years later Jerry met LaFaye Weeks Hansen and they were later married and the couple welcomed two children into their family Candice and Chad. They were later divorced.
Jerry loved tinkering with and doing repairs on cars and had a natural ability for it. He loved the outdoors and enjoyed camping and fishing a great deal. He took his family fishing many times at Weston Reservoir, which was one of his favorite spots. He enjoyed having a garden, caring for it, watching it grow and flourish. Jerry also loved all kinds of animals and really enjoyed raising livestock. He was very good with animals and loved to name each one and spoil them. He especially loved dogs and even when he was no longer able to have livestock, he always had a dog of some kind close to his side.
Jerry is survived by four children LuAnn (John) Keith, of Tooele, UT; Alan (Sherry) Daley, Farr West, UT; Candice (Jaron) Livingston, of Weston, ID; and Chad (Becky) Daley of Preston, ID; as well as 13 grandchildren and 11 great grandchildren.
