Jerome Lannon

LANNON Jerome “Jerry” Age 58 – Washington County Deputy Sheriff “Don’t shed tears of grief, shed tears of joy if you wish, because I’m far better off in the presence of my King of Kings, than I was here on earth.” Husband, father, papa, brother and “buddy” to all. Jerry is preceded in death by his parents, Leo and Josephine; Uncle Jim, Aunt Betty and cousin, Johnny. He is survived by his wife, Cindy “Bunny”; daughters (nee Funk), Maggie (DJ) Clark, Ali (Zach) Reinhardt, and Monica (Stephen) Ariens; grand darlings, Josephine and Elsa; siblings, Bill (Susie) and Mary McMillan; nieces and nephews, Katie Jo, Dan and Emilie; and our extended family and friends. Memorial Service will be held 2PM on Friday, November 30th at EAGLE BROOK CHURCH, 2401 East Buffalo St., White Bear Lake. Visitation will be 4-7PM on Thursday, November 29th and also 1 hour prior to the service, all at EAGLE BROOK CHURCH. Jerry was the youngest of three; raised on the family farm in Burnsville, MN. He attended St. John’s Catholic School in Savage, MN and graduated from Burnsville High School in 1978. His best childhood memories were growing up on the family farm with his siblings and Sodomka cousins. Jerry began his career in law enforcement in Huxley, Iowa. He continued in Pleasant Hill and Colfax, serving for 11 years in Iowa before returning to Minnesota. Jerry started with the Washington County Sheriff's Office on December 20th, 1999. He was a deputy, school resource officer, detective, court security officer, SWAT operator, and range instructor. He was proud to serve our communities and work alongside such loving and honorable men and women. Jerry deeply loved and cared for his family and studying God’s word. Jerry spent many years in Bible Study Fellowship (BSF), couples small groups, Thursday morning men’s group, and volunteering at church. He also had great love for the MN Vikings, sweets and treats, boating, traveling and road trips with Bunny, card games, pulling pranks, sauces, napkins, washing his hands, animals & feeding the birds. If you were blessed to have Jerry call you “Buddy”, “Mister”, “Brother”, or “Fine American” you know you were loved by him. Jerry was a friend to all. He led with kindness and hoped to bring a smile or laugh to those around him each day. In lieu of flowers, our family would like to honor Jerry with donations to the Alaska Dream Center where he and Bunny served on their last mission trip together in August 2018. Donations can be made online at http://dreamcenterak.org/. Cards can be sent to the Mueller Memorial Funeral home.
