Jerry “Bumpy” Law peacefully returned to his Heavenly Father on September 23, 2022 surrounded by his loving wife and daughters. Jerry was born on March 1, 1939, in Ogden, Utah to John A. Law and Sarah Isabelle Boyle. He was the youngest of four children. In his youth, he enjoyed playing baseball, fishing, and hunting with his family. Jerry graduated from Ogden High School in 1957 and quickly enrolled at Weber State University, where he attended for 1 year prior to serving a faithful 3 1/2 year mission in the South German Stuttgart area. Jerry grew to love the language, culture, and people of Germany. After returning from his mission, he enrolled at BYU until he received his draft notice for the United States Army. He honorably served for 4 years; among his many duties, he served in the military police and as a game warden. During one of his military leaves, while teaching a Sunday School class, he met a shy young girl (Linda), who would later become his eternal companion. In 1963, he returned to Weber State University and earned a Bachelor’s Degree in Accounting. He spent over 50 years working as an accountant for public and private companies.
On August 19, 1966, he married Linda R. Kihlstrom in the Salt Lake Temple. Jerry and Linda were blessed with 4 daughters. He always said, “they are my greatest accomplishments!” Jerry was an active and faithful member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints and served in many church callings. He loved visiting Disneyland with his kids and grandkids. He also enjoyed watching college football and cheered for the Y and the U to support a house divided.
Jerry is survived by his wife of 56 years, Linda (whom he lovingly called Beine), 4 daughters: Suzee (Shaun) Mower, Merilee (Brett) Thompson, Jae (Ramiro) Munoz, and Jaquel Jorgensen. 8 grandkids; Caden (Huntlie) Mower, Madison (Trevor) Murphy, Abbie (Cameron) Dougherty, Berklee Mower, Emma Thompson, Coby Munoz, Kyler Munoz, and Carter Munoz, and a great granddaughter, Remi Murphy. Preceded in death by his parents and siblings, what a glorious reunion.
We are the luckiest girls in the world – We love you always and forever!

I was a missionary companion to Jerry in Nuremberg. We also were in the group that arrived in Germany together and attended Weber College at the same time. We were about the same height and build and some thought we were biological brothers. As it worked out, we were able to attend the Oberammergau Passion Play in 1960 with our "house Frau's" from Nuremberg. Jerry told me that I snored too much and that it kept him awake. I told him I didn't snore and went to bed. Later that night he recorded my snoring and played back to me at breakfast the next morning, proving me wrong! We had some great experiences together as missionaries, worked hard and had success. His spirituality was so humble and good and many of our contacts could read that in him. Jerry was a favorite companion - one I will always remember and be grateful for our time together. He was the one who at lunch time said, "we need to knock on just one more door"! As it turned out, that family joined to church. Had we not done that, we could have missed a great opportunity to bring them into the Gospel. Jerry was a "great man" in my book and I was so lucky that our paths crossed as they did. My love to all of you with his passing - you can be so lucky to have had such a great husband and father. I look forward to a reunion with him at a future time!
