Jerry Wayne McCrary
August 1, 1942 – January 2, 2019
Jerry Wayne McCrary passed away on January 2, 2019 in Georgetown, Texas at the age of 76 after a hard fought battle with cancer. Jerry's loved ones will always remember him as a generous, caring, and loving man; always joking and self-deprecating, he called himself "Mr. Excitement". Jerry enjoyed life and made those around him feel loved and lived in the moment.
Born on August 1, 1942, Jerry was the eldest child of Otis and Syble McCrary, followed by four siblings. He spent his formative years in Sherman, TX, where he met his wife of 54 years, Linda Sloan McCrary. Together Jerry and Linda raised three children, Stacy, Jeff, and Michael. Forever in love, Jerry and Linda tackled the world together with gusto as soul mates.
Jerry is survived by his beloved wife, Linda and his children, Stacy McCrary and husband Keith; Jeff McCrary and his children Parrish and husband Michael, Sybil, and husband Devin, and Jerry (Jay); Michael McCrary, and wife Kelly and children Blake, Caroline, and Trevor.
He is preceded in death by his parents, Otis and Sybil (Watwood) McCrary, his granddaughter Lillian Faith McCrary; his brothers; David McCrary, Gary McCrary, Randy McCrary, and sister, Tammy Gail McCrary. Jerry also leaves behind several beloved nieces and nephews.
A Celebration of Jerry’s life will be held at 2:00 p.m. on Saturday, January 5, 2019 at Cimarron Hills Country Club in Georgetown.
In lieu of flowers, the family has requested that memorial contributions be made to the American Cancer Society.
