A memorial service for Jerry Bayless is planned for 4 p.m. Saturday, July 13, at First Presbyterian Church of Rolla and under the direction of Null & Son Funeral Home. Visitation will be 1-4 p.m. at the church.
Jerry Bayless, retired associate professor of civil engineering who died July 2 at age 81, taught thousands of students in a career that spanned seven decades and three different names for the same university. Known by students and alumni as “Mr. MSM,” “Mr. UMR” or “Mr. S&T,” depending on the era, or simply as “Mr. Miner” to many, he is also remembered as a dedicated professor who was the “heart and soul” of Missouri S&T.
In lieu of flowers, contributions may be made to the Professor Jerry R. Bayless Scholarship at Missouri S&T at give.mst.edu. (After entering your personal information and choosing a gift amount, click on the circle under “Designation,” choose “other” and type in “In memory of Jerry Bayless.”)
