Jerry was born on November 3, 1945, at home in Jasper. During his time on Earth, he was a loving and devoted husband, father, and friend to so many. With his passing, he took a piece of our hearts with him. He was a member of Jasper’s First Baptist Church. Jerry was a faithful servant to the Lord through his ministry and deeds. He spent many years, countless hours, and days doing what he loved, helping others. Jerry loved God, his family, and friends. He loved going to watch ballgames and support all the kids he cherished. He loved volleyball the most. His favorite place to visit was Cades Cove. He was a man that loved life and what a beautiful one he built. He was preceded in death by his childhood sweetheart and loving wife, Patricia Ann Sherer; parents, Breck and Lois Sherer; siblings, Marjorie Vance, Jimmy Sherer, and Bobbie Sherer; and in-law, Violet Harper.

He is survived by his daughters, Melissa O’Neal (Carl), Tammy Knowles (Mike), and Amy McGhee (Jimmy); grandchildren, Brad Allred (Kim), Brandon Allred (Becca), Heather Tittle (Kelsey), Justin Knowles (Malinda), Meagan Dutton, Savannah McGhee, and Emma McGhee; 11 great-grandchildren; sister, Betty Woodley; brother, Mike Sherer (Martha); in-law, Floyd Harper (Kazuko) and host of nieces, nephews, and friends.

We can’t begin to express our love and gratitude for the outpouring of prayers and support during this difficult time.

From the early days of playing baseball as kids to see him and his wife get married to see his children come into this world, to see Jerry and Pat getting saved ,to bring his beautiful children up and each one of them come to find Jesus folks if we could see this world filled up with people like these our world would not be in the trouble it is in. We will miss our great Friend but one day we will see each other again . Love Ed and Rachel Frazier and all of our family .

I had the blessing of Jerry’s friendship on a few wonderful church projects along with worshiping with him on Sundays. He loved everyone and everyone loved him! I agreed with Mr. Euel when he stated that the people on the work project won’t remember me or you, but they will all remember Jerry ! He had a heart of gold. He got a real thrill doing projects for people who had special needs. He loved them all equally. He was a man after God’s own heart. A role model for us all.

I’ve been on lots of mission trips with Jerry over a big part of the U. S. Also helped build a lot of handicap ramps in and around Jasper. He was a good friend with a heart of gold and a heart for service. RIP Jerry Sherer

So sadden by the passing of this sweet and wonderful man. Jerry answered the call to bring his group to Midway, Alabama to help us remodel our church Midway Baptist. God truly sent these wonderful Christian men to our little community, not once, but several times. We were truly blessed and Jerry was the life of the group. We love you Jerry and we are going to miss you but God does not make mistakes and we know that you are walking the streets of gold, meeting all your friends and love ones. You are already where we are striving to get to. We look forward to the day that you will join us again. We love you and will miss you terribly. Jerry & Mary Lee Poss and family

He was such a Gentle Giant. I cherish the World Changers trips we went on together. He and Roger O’shields were precious and priceless! If heaven needs anything built, they’ve got it covered!

I remember the night he was saved and he is such a great man as everyone speaks of. He has always been there if you need him. He was the sweetest man. Wish I had been around him more but lives were in different directions. I pray for all of the family. Love y’all even though we are in different directions. God bless y’all.
