Jerry Delbert Myers, 79, of Albemarle, passed away on June 2, 2022 at his home.
Jerry was born in Wilkes County on October 2, 1942 to the late Lonnie Delbert Myers and the late Sally Bauguess Myers. He was also preceded in death by his wife, Doris Myers and sister, Jane Myers.
Before retiring, Jerry served as the County Manager of Stanly County. As a life-long public servant, he served in the US Navy, the Federal Bureau of Investigation, Centralina Council of Governments, and several other local governments. In his spare time he liked fishing, watching the Atlanta Braves, taking in a boxing match occasionally, eating out with his girlfriend, and reading short stories on his computer. He took pride in his shooting skills. Apart from those pesky, no-good squirrels who wreaked havoc on his bird feeders, all other animals were safe.
He took tremendous pride in his family. Jerry is survived by his daughter, Keli (Craig) Greer of Roaring Gap; grandson, Riley Greer of Austin, TX; sister-in-law, Naureen Hobbs of Cary; brother-in-law, Joseph (Carol) Hobbs of Johnston, SC; nephews, Craig and Mike Hobbs and Tony Elder; niece, Lara Hobbs; his girlfriend, Ivy Holt of Albemarle; and many other special cousins and friends.
A visitation will be held 10:00 am -12:00 pm, Saturday, June 18, 2022 at Hartsell Funeral Home, Albemarle, NC.
