Jerry attended Dublin High School’s class of 1965, he was also a Vietnam veteran from the United States Air Force. Jerry Became a Town of Pulaski police officer in 1971. A hardcore Harley Davidson Enthusiast, he believed strongly in the phrase “Panheads Forever”. Throughout his life he also became a deputy for the county of Pulaski. He earned a degree in Law Enforcement, and chose to become a Rehabilitation Counselor for the Bland County Correctional Farm. However, the greatest title he ever held was being deemed Pawpaw by his 4 grandchildren. He never hesitated to give money, time, or even a meal. Whatever was needed to help someone in need. At times he would give what was his, to someone else who he thought needed it more than himself.  Memorial services will be held Friday, June 30, 2017 at 2:00 p.m. at Seagle Funeral Home.  Interment will be at 3:00 p.m. at the Southwest Virginia Veterans Cemetery.  Visiting will be Thursday at the funeral home from 6:00 p.m. until 8:00 p.m. Online condolences will be sent to the family by visiting www.seaglefuneral  Arrangements by Seagle Funeral Home, Pulaski.
