Obituary for Gerald "Jerry" Kendrick

DURHAM: Gerald “Jerry” Kendrick, 71, passed away at Duke University Hospital on Thursday, April 13, 2017. He was born in Roberson Co., NC to the late Elvis and Blanche Kendrick. He was predeceased by his brothers, Bill Kendrick and Louis Kendrick.

Mr. Kendrick is survived by his wife, Judith “Judi” Kendrick; daughter, Teresa Perry and husband, Chris; sons, Chad Kendrick, Gerald Kendrick, II and wife, Cathi; and grandchildren, Christopher Perry, II, Alexis Perry, and Cameron Kendrick.

Jerry was a graduate of the Class of 1964 from Northern High School. He worked for IBM and retired from that company after 30 years of service. Building race cars for the tracks at Orange County and South Boston, Jerry passed his love for the sport to his two sons. More than anything else in the world he loved his large extended family. He was a quiet, gentle giant who befriended all who came into the circle of his life.
