Richard Lee Jackson III

October 12, 1939 ~ October 15, 2019 (age 80)


Richard Lee Jackson III was born on October 12,1939 in Kansas City MO to Richard Lee Jackson Jr and
Myra Rose (Tish) Kelliker. He passed away on October 15, 2019. Since a young age, he loved the
outdoors and all it offered – fishing, hiking, camping, dirt bike riding-to name a few. The more remote
the location, the better. He came to Northern California when in the US Air Force. After his service, he
started his career in the telephone service business as a Lineman for Pacific Bell, retiring over 35 years
later as a Lucent Business Manager for Nevada and parts of Northern California. He is preceded in death
by his parents and younger brother, Dale. He is survived by his sister, Roberta Jackson; his wife, Sherry
Jackson; daughters Cheryl(Fred) and Wendee(Akio); grandchildren Richard, Jackson, Eric and Jessie. A
memorial gathering is to be held at a later date. Remembrances can be made in his honor to a charity
supporting the welfare of stray cats (several found their way into his heart over the years) or a charity of
your choice.
