Jerl “Jerry” Duke Robertson, age 70, of Republic, Missouri, passed away January 9, 2021. He was born January 21, 1950, in Amarillo, Texas, the son of William Duke Robertson and Clover Cartence (DeWitt) Warren. Jerry was joined in marriage September 26, 1998, to Jackie Cowles.

An outdoorsman at heart, Jerry enjoyed hunting in his earlier years. Later in life, he could be found pursuing trout with his fly rod in the cool waters of Bennett Springs State Park. When he was not traveling across the United States as an over-the-road truck driver, Jerry was an avid reader and watched NASCAR. Most of all, he loved his family and will be missed by those who loved him.

He was preceded in death by his parents, his best friend and fishing buddy, Dan Brumbaugh and his good friend and fellow truck driver, Hugh Babione.

Jerry is survived by his loving wife of 23 years, Jackie Robertson of the home; a daughter, Stacey Nicole Deragowski of Dixon, Missouri; three grandchildren: Trevor, Tylor and Destiney; three greatgrandchildren: Gavyn, Jory, and Harmony; two sisters, Rebecca Sue Pinion and husband Victor of Corpus Christi, Texas, Paula Kay Kelley of Willard, Missouri; his niece, Farrah; three nephews: Justin, Larry, and Jeffrey; and his four-pound companion and furry travel buddy of 13 years, his chihuahua, “Fancy.” 

A private celebration of life will be held later this summer. Arrangements and cremation are under the direction of Cremations of the Ozarks. To leave an online condolence to Jerry’s family, please visit
