Obituary

Calvin “Buddy” Jernigan, died peacefully on Wednesday, November 13, 2019 after 94 wonderful years of life. He was born in Irving, Texas to Dewey and Lucy (Roseberry) Jernigan on Thursday, March 26, 1925. Buddy joined the United States Navy in May of 1943, proudly serving his country during WWII. After receiving an Honorable discharge in February of 1946, Buddy returned back to his hometown of Irving. He is a former member of the American Legion and Elks Lodge in Irving. Buddy was a hard worker, with a big heart and was willing to help anyone he could. He is lovingly remembered for his compassionate and honest to a fault personality. Buddy enjoyed motorcycle racing with his son Keith, having a cold beer and above all, he loved traveling with his wife Peggy in their motor home. Buddy lived a great, amazing influential and inspiring life, so may you also be inspired by the words of Buddy’s favorite quote “Don’t let the old man in.” He is preceded in death by his parents, Brothers Charles and Leroy and sisters, Dorothy and Lorraine and first wife Elizabeth. Left to cherish his memory are his loving wife of 32 years, Peggy Jernigan; son Keith Jernigan; son Rory Hood and spouse Lori; son Milton Hood and spouse Beth; son Rodney Hood and spouse Michelle; daughter Kay Jernigan; daughter Wendy Jernigan Allen and spouse Robert; 13 grandchildren; 16 great grandchildren as well as numerous nieces, nephews and other additional loving family and friends. A memorial service to honor & celebrate Buddy’s life well lived will be held at 11:00am, Saturday, November 30, 2019 at Brown’s Memorial Funeral Home, 707 N. MacArthur Blvd. in Irving. A committal with Military Honors will be held at Calloway Cemetery in Euless, TX immediately following.
