He was the son of Basil E. DIDDLE and Mrs. Helen Lucille ARMSTRONG Ratcliff. Even though divorced, they both died in Palm Beach County, Florida.

Jerry and Roenia married on 01 Mar 1953 in Sedalia, Pettis County, Missouri. They divorced once, then quickly remarried. After Roenia's death, he married Mrs. Eugenia Victoria Vargas Patterson on 22 Apr 1994 in Seminole County, Florida.

They had two sons, Joe and Tim. They have all lived in or around Orlando for many years.

He is also survived by his brother Thomas John Diddle and wife Lettie of Boynton Beach and their children.

He worked for, and retired from, the US Navy as a civilian. He was a wonderful christian man who loved the Lord.

I always enjoyed our holiday dinners together. Those are such happy memories.

The poor man was plagued by cancer and this is what claimed his life. I miss him and Aunt Roenia very much.
