Jerry Harrelson age, 69, passed away on Monday, December 25, 2023, at his home in Reidsville surrounded by his loving family. He was born on December 7, 1954, in Vidalia to his loving parents, Odell and Mary Sharpe Harrelson. 

Throughout his working career, Jerry found joy and fulfillment as a painter. He had an unwavering dedication to his craft and always put his heart and soul into every stroke of the brush.

Beyond his passion for painting, Jerry enjoyed engaging in various activities that brought him excitement and camaraderie. He had a special love for shooting pool and even participated in turkey shoots. Hunting was another hobby that he enjoyed.
