When he was younger he loved to go fishing, he loved old classic cars, and he loved to sing and play the guitar, of which he taught himself to play. He was so proud when his grandchildren came along and was excited about his youngest granddaughter, Kayle Sawyer, getting married this July. Jerry will be greatly missed by his family and all that knew him.

    Sorry to hear of Jerry's passing. Didn't see him much the last few years, but have grown up together. We've been neighbors most of our lives. You are in my thoughts and prayers.

    Linda and family, So sorry to hear about Jerry...we have been friends a long time, graduated high school together, rode the same school bus (even sat together), worked in tobacco with him and his family. Loved to hear him sing and imitate Hank Williams and Elvis!! Many good memories of times gone by... He has been through a lot over the years, I pray now he is at peace. Prayers for all of you. I know you will miss him, he was always a good guy. Remember the good times, no one can take those times away from you. We were closer when we were young, but I still loved him.
