Jerry Dean Sheets, 73, of Graham, North Carolina, succumbed to cancer at the comfort of his own home surrounded by his family on December 30, 2018.
Jerry is survived by his loving wife June of 53 years, daughters Danielle (Tim) Christian, Lisa (Jan) Ots, son Gunnar Sheets, sisters Carloyn (Brent) Triplett and Kaye Sheets, and many loving grandchildren, nieces, nephews and extended family. Jerry was a loving father, husband, grandfather and a friend to everyone.
Jerry loved sports, especially college basketball, where his favorite team was the North Carolina Tarheels. He worked as a territory sales manager for Gillette for over 30 years. He spent his free time creating beautiful wood pieces and watching various sports games on tv. He really enjoyed hanging out with friends and family. Jerry was always there to help relatives or friends with household projects, haggling good deals, and whatever else people needed him for.
A special thank you to the people at Hospice & Palliative Care Center of Alamance-Caswell for their loving care and support during his final days.
A celebration of life service will be held at 11:00 AM, Saturday, January 12, 2018 at Mt. Carmel Church of the Brethren, 9618 US Highway 221 N, Laurel Springs, NC 28644. In lieu of flowers, memorial donations may be sent to Cancer Research, in honor of Jerry (https://www.cancerresearch.org).
