Gerald “Jerry” McNulty, 1926–2017

Gerald "Jerry" McNulty of Tehachapi passed away March 29, 2017, while recovering from hip surgery. Born in Redondo Beach on May 24, 1926, and residing in El Segundo until 1990, Jerry then moved to Tehachapi to enjoy a new chapter of his life in retirement. Jerry grew up in a small town with his parents and brother, with traditional values. He graduated from El Segundo High School, and like many men at that time, he chose to serve in the Navy, during World War II.

After returning home from his service in the military, he married his sweetheart, Wynogene, and raised a family. While living in Tehachapi for 27 years, Jerry and his wife were involved in St. Malachy's Catholic Church and Sierra Mountain Meadows PUD. His family was always his first concern in his almost 91 years of life, and he loved spending time with them. "Grandpa Mac" was always ready to debate politics and religion, but really enjoyed his family, friends and a good Scotch.

Jerry was preceded in death by his wife of 61 years. He is survived by his children, Brian McNulty and his wife, Mary, Gail McNulty-Embry, Maureen McNulty-Harrop and her husband, Bob, and Bradley McNulty and his wife, Sebrina; as well as numerous grandchildren and great-grandchildren.

A funeral Mass will be held at 10:30 a.m. Friday, May 5, 2017, at St. Malachy's Catholic Church in Tehachapi. In lieu of flowers, the family asks that donations would be made to, in honor of Gerald and Wynogene McNulty. We'll miss you, Grandpa!
