Jerry Dean Dickinson was born on June 19, 1936, in Oklahoma City, Oklahoma, to James Alfred Dickinson and Jonnie Lou (Couch) Dickinson. He passed from his earthly life and into the loving arms of Jesus on November 11, 2020.

Jerry served in the Naval Reserves for two years. He was a past president of the North OKC Rotary Club. Jerry was a Certified Public Accountant and Certified Financial Planner, and he co-founded the accounting firm where he worked as a partner for many years. Even after retiring from full-time practice, he remained actively involved in the accounting profession until 2020. He was a quiet and reserved man, but he had a quick wit and ready laugh.
