Jerry Searcy, HSD, GHS

Jerry Searcy, HSD, GHS served in the Air Force from 1960 to 1964, where he serviced equipment used to maintain fighter jets. After this he attended school learning computer programming. He worked for the Nevada Power Company from 1966 to 1969, and after that worked for Clark County Public Works until retiring in 1997 when he relocated to Scottsdale to work as a volunteer for Alcor.
 
As a man who values his life, Jerry joined Alcor in 1978, over a quarter of century ago, when Alcor was only six years old and had only 65 members. His ambition is to stay alive as long as possible and experience space travel.
 
An avid astronomy buff, Jerry enjoys looking through the 60 inch telescope at Mount Wilson. He also enjoys cruises and the buffets in Las Vegas where he always has a successful “hunt”.
 
Jerry has provided $5,000 in matching funds for the Lifeboat Podcast for iTunes grant and our University Outreach Program.
