Death: Jan. 30, 2012

Jerry D. Ables passed away peacefully at his home with his son by his side on January 30, 2012. Born to Cordell "Shorty" and Helen "Honey" Ables on November 2, 1948 in Rayville, Louisiana. He came to Eureka, CA, and attended the local elementary and high school. He enrolled in the United States Army. His list of awards and accomplishments were numerous. He then proceeded to graduate from the College of the Redwoods Police Academy and pursued a career as a Humboldt County Sheriff's Deputy for approximately 12 years. He was very proud to be apart of the K9 and Bomb Units. He then went back to finish his military career in the National Guard where he was the Company Commander of the local A Company and later retired as Major. Jerry will be remembered for his love of boating, camping, water skiing, love of guns, the numerous stories of his Army and Sheriff days and his love for learning new things. Jerry was known to always help friends and family in any of their home improvement projects or when something in their car needed to be fixed. We want to thank all the caregivers over the years. He and his family appreciated the love and care you provided him. He is survived by his grandma "Mama" Lavelle, son Jason (wife Yvette), daughter Melissa, grandchildren Dylan and Hunter, Colton and Kylie, brother Cary (wife Carrie), sister Sherry, Uncle Jim (wife Carol), Uncle Robert (wife Judy), Aunt Mavis (husband Wayne), and numerous cousins, nieces and nephews. Friends are invited to attend the graveside ceremony being held at Ocean View Cemetery on Tuesday February 7, 2012 at 11:00AM.
