Easley, SC - Mr. Jerry Eddie Leslie, 61, husband of Paula Porter Leslie, passed away Friday, June 4, 2021 at Prisma Health Greenville Memorial Hospital.

Jerry was born in Greenville County on July 6, 1959 to Mary Ann Stegall Leslie of Easley and the late Guy E. Leslie. He was a proud 1978 graduate of Easley High School and during his school days, drove the school bus and received the bus driver of the year award. Jerry loved trees, and built a connection with the outdoor world and everything in it. He enjoyed his life as a farmer, and in true farmer fashion, loved his Farmall Tractors. Being the avid farmer and outdoorsman, he had a love for all animals and the color green, but was especially fond of his "fur baby", Butterscotch.

In addition to his loving wife Paula, Jerry is survived by his mother: Mary Ann Stegall Leslie of Easley.

In addition to his father, Jerry was preceded in death by two brothers: Perry and Terry Leslie; and his paternal grandmother: Addie Leslie, who was especially near and dear to him.

No formal services are being planned at this time. If services are planned at a later date, they will be announced via the Dillard Funeral Home website.

In lieu of flowers and because of Jerry's love for animals, Paula requests that memorial donations be made to the Pickens County Humane Society via their website at https://www.pchumanesociety.org.

The family is at their respective homes.

Paula, my other daughter, so sad to hear that Jerry has lost his battle here but he is now healed and with his master I can’t remember if we ever met but he had to be a good man with you as his wife. Praying for God’s mercy and blessings of comfort for you as you adjust.

Paula, I am sorry and surprised to see that Jerry has passed. I miss seeing him in his truck as he moved along. He gave me a kitten to help with an issue that we had several years ago. I also remember seeing him as he helped Mrs. Hamilition at the First Baptist Church. You are in my thoughts and prayers during this difficult time.
