Jerry Steve Ferrell

  • Chief
  • Monticello Fire Department
  • Kentucky
  • Age: 63
  • Year of Death: 2021

Jerry Steve Ferrell was born in Monticello, Kentucky, to the late Dennis and Doris Ferrell on August 8, 1958. Steve was a dedicated public servant and a proud United States Army veteran, having enlisted August 8,1976, and retiring on November 30, 1999, as an SSG E-6 after 23 years of valiant service.

Steve joined the Monticello Fire Department as a volunteer firefighter in 1977 and became Chief Ferrell in 1994. Chief Ferrell was a volunteer for 17 years and chief for 27 years. Steve was still the fire chief of Monticello Fire Department upon his departure from this earth, serving a total of 44 years for the community that he loved.

Chief Ferrell was a devoted, loving family man, leaving behind his wife of nearly 24 years, Joyce Ferrell; daughter, Tiffany Ferrell; stepdaughter, Selena Horton (Justin Horton); stepdaughter, Kimberly Weymouth (Josh Weymouth); and grandchildren, Gracie Horton, Jace Horton, Brennan Morin, Aubrey Cooper, Cora Cooper, and Eliza Weymouth.

Steve enjoyed being on his pontoon boat fishing, camping with family and friends, spending time with his family (he adored all his grandchildren), and the fire department. Steve loved the fire department and all the firefighters as if they were family. Steve was well respected and always showed the same respect for anyone he knew or met. Although he departed this earth too soon, we will cherish all the memories made, and anytime a fire truck is seen or heard our hearts will always be reminded of Chief Ferrell 301.

301 will be no more. His number was retired by the city after Chief Ferrell’s departure from this earth.

As his fellow firemen would say, “Chief, we will take it from here.”
