George Eugene (Gene) Usery, 71, of Hallsville Texas was called home to be with The Lord Friday March 13, 2020, after a battle with pancreatic cancer. He was surrounded by his loving family, Pastor Marion Coon and friend, Curtis.

Gene was born in Mississippi to George and Mildred Usery. He moved to Texas at the age of 19 meeting his future wife, Cherie Clark. They were married in 1971. He went to Kilgore College, then joined the Air Force. He served in Guam; then he and Cherie finished out his time in Michigan. Moving back to Texas, he went to work for Eastman, retiring in 2015, where he made many wonderful friends.

He enjoyed golf, Fugler burgers, sports (Dallas Mavericks, New Orleans Saints), above all he loved The Lord, and his family and will always be remembered and loved as a great husband, father, and pawpaw.

He was a member of Open Range Cowboy Church, and loved every minute spent there with his church family. He loved sitting in the prayer chairs being prayed for by all the prayer warriors.
He was preceded in death by his father, George; mother, Mildred; and sister, Peggy. He is survived by his wife of 49 years, Cherie Usery; daughter, Kelly Usery; son, Jason Usery; grandson, Micheal Usery (Leea); and their children, Jaxon and Everly; family, Ruby Usery; Marty Usery; James Edwards (Pam); Jerry Edwards (Deborah); Tresa Morrison; Steve League (Karen). He was also blessed with bonus family Amie and Lexi Jorgenson, Chris Lyman (our second son); the Lyman family, Brittanie, Jacey, and Edgar Belcher, and many great and loving cousins, nieces, nephews, friends and neighbors.
