Gary Jorgensen, 74

In loving memory of Gary DeVern Jorgensen, who passed away Monday, Dec. 13, 2021, in Lexington, KY. He fought a brave battle against cancer and remained unwavering right up until the end.

Gary was born Jan. 3, 1947, to Devern and Merline Jorgensen in Watertown, MN, where he attended grade school.

Upon graduating high school, Gary proudly served his country in the Army National Guard, being honorably discharged in 1968. He loved God and his country, and was always quick to share a story about his faith and country.

Gary married Lorraine (Lori) Fiecke, daughter of Marvin and Shirley Fiecke Aug. 4, 1984. The marriage was blessed with his greatest joys, his three boys, never shying away from an opportunity to let them know as much.

Brandon, who married Karley, their son Lawrence, whom he loved telling stories, sharing pictures, and giving rides to, and their soon-to-be second son due in April 2022; Christopher and Sydney Leon; and Patrick and Mattie Parsley.

Gary enjoyed a wonderful last year with his entire family, which included family trips to Arizona and Kentucky, where many laughs were shared, and memories were made. He felt so blessed every time we were all together as a family.

Gary also wanted everyone to know how much he enjoyed the annual ice fishing trips with the Fiecke clan and their families, as well as all the time he spent making memories in your campers. The smiles, laughs and stories that he could tell from those times brought heartwarming joy that could fill a room.

Additionally, the many trips that family and friends made to see us, whether it was in Colorado or Kentucky, created memories and stories that last a lifetime and will be passed down for generations.

Gary was a hard worker, great provider for his family, and loved by all he met.

Now our beloved, husband, father, “grampy,” son-in-law, brother-in-law, uncle, son, and brother, go rest high on that mountain, your work on Earth is done. You now are with the Farther and the Son.

We will see you again one day. You are forever in our hearts, thoughts, and memories.
