Guthrie, Winfred Jerry, 81, left us to be with his Lord and Savior on February 4, 2018. He is survived by his beloved wife of 62 years, Laura Blanton Guthrie, his daughter, Roxanne Guthrie Wilke (Stan), his granddaughter Caitlin Erin Duke (David), his brother Charles Guthrie, along with many nieces, nephews and extended family. Jerry was preceded in death by his parents, Winfred and Era (Meyers) Guthrie, brothers Bill, Bob and Don Guthrie. He entered the Army after high school to follow his sweetheart, Laura, when she enlisted. They were married during their basic training in Texas. Jerry’s biggest joy was taking care of the love of his life, Laura, his daughter and granddaughter. After they returned home, Jerry started a successful career in the steel industry. He retired from UNR-Leavitt as one of the top salesman in 2006. He was a devoted member of Westwood Baptist Church in Alabaster, AL and his previous church Hillview Baptist Church. Jerry was a respected member of the community. Everyone he met was a friend, no one was a stranger. He went out of his way to help anyone in need, whether it be emotional, spiritual or monetary. A Celebration of Life will be Friday, February 9, 2018 at 12:30 pm at Crestview Memorial Funeral Home with a time of visitation from 10:30 am until 12:30 pm at the funeral home. Burial will be in Alabama National Cemetery. In lieu of flowers, please make donations to the St. Jude’s Hospital, Wounded Warrior Project, or the Disabled American Veterans.
