Jerry Steven Pop, 61, departed this life due to liver cancer on November 10, 2018 in Olympia, Washington. He was born on March 26, 1957 in Taylorville, Illinois to Steve and Jennie Pop.

A graduate of Taylorville High School (1975) and Bailey Technical School (1978) in St. Louis, Missouri, Jerry was a heavy equipment operator and mechanic.

Jerry was loyal, dependable, fun-loving, and had a twisted sense of humor. He especially treasured time spent with family and friends. He will be remembered for his signature phrases, such as “Are you asking me…or telling me?,” “Whatcha wearing?,” “Drive it like a man,” “Hey, Trudy,” and “Nobody gets out alive.”  

He is survived by his son Justin (Candice) Pop; daughter, Ashley Pop (Bobby) Barrow; five grandchildren: (Wyatt, Joslyn, Rowan, Landon and Madilyn); mother, Jennie Pop; and sisters, Joanie Pop (David Smelcer) and Cindy “Squid” Pop (Charles “Boots”) Howard. His father, Steve Pop, preceded him in death.

There will be a private family gathering. For full obituary and to leave memories, go to
