2019 General Excellence - 1st Place
Washington Newspaper Association
Jerry Donald Thacker, 81, passed away peacefully on February 15, 2019 at his home in University Place, WA. A celebration of life will be held at 2pm on February 23rd, 2019 at STAR Center Community Center, 3873 S. 66th St. Tacoma, WA 98409.
Was this the same Jerry Thacker who was the star forward on the PTHS basketball team back in his day, with his brother '"Little Joe" at guard? Lost out to Zillah in an advanced round at the stat tournament . . . coach Bruce Blevins. If so, I enjoyed watching him play and following him as a Leader reporter.
