Jerrald Hoefner Obituary, Death – Jerrald “Jerry” Edward Hoefner, 67, a Knightstown resident, died. On Thursday, November 17, 2022, a medical examiner at Hancock Regional Hospital confirmed the patient’s death. He was born on December 9, 1954, in Enid, Oklahoma. His parents were John D. Hoefner and Sara (Main) Miller. After graduating from Madison Heights High School in 1972, Jerry went on to work at Borg Warner. He worked there for 33 years before retiring in 2007, when he reached the retirement age. Attending car shows, listening to rock and roll, watching the Chicago Cubs play baseball, and watching Indiana University play basketball were among his favorite pastimes.
Jerry served as Legion Commander as well as a member of the Sons of the American Legion during his time with the organization. He has also previously worked at Knightstown’s Soldiers and Sailors Children’s Home. He treasured the time he spent with each of his eleven grandchildren, whom he adored equally. Irene Hoefner, his wife of ten years, and his daughter, Amanda Jo Hoefner (Mike Bell), survive, as do his stepchildren, Traci (Adam) Kinder, Daniel (Amanda), and Michael (Irma) Tumilty; and his siblings, Loretta (Ron) Manley, John Hoefner, Mark (Ronda) Brinkley, William Brinkley, Tamra (Irv) Ramsey, Dor.
In addition to his biological parents, he was predeceased by his stepfather, William F. Brinkley; his father-in-law, Ralph H. Case; and his sisters-in-law, Lorna Hoefner and Judy Hampton. His biological parents were also among those who passed away before him. His great-grandparents were also taken from this world before he was born. It has been decided that no public services will be provided because Jerry has requested them. Hinsey-Brown Funeral Service, Knightstown Chapel, has been entrusted with making all necessary arrangements. The Sons of the American Legion Chesterfield Post, which can be found at 5100 Mounds Road, Anderson, Indiana 46017 and accepts donations in his honor, will carry on his legacy.
