Obituary for Jerry Greene

Jerry Truman Greene, age 80, passed away Wednesday, September 20, 2017, in Chapel Hill, North Carolina.

Jerry leaves behind the love of his life, Muriel (Alford) Greene, with whom he shared 58 years of marriage; his son, Kevin (Amy) Greene and grandson, Charlie, of Chapel Hill, North Carolina; his son, Shannon Scott (Vicki) Greene and grandchildren, Alex and Addison, of Lexington, South Carolina; his sister, Frances (John) Inman of Troy, North Carolina; his sister-in-law, Gayle Virginia Greene, of Asheboro, North Carolina and many nieces, nephews, and friends.

Jerry is predeceased by his parents, Loyd Ray and Martha McCaskill Greene, and his brother, Furman Ray (Gayle) Greene.

Jerry was born on October 25, 1936 in Troy, North Carolina. He attended Wake Forest University in Winston Salem, before embarking on a 40-year career in the baking industry. Jerry retired as vice-president of production for the southeastern division of Interstate Brands.

Jerry loved entertaining his three grandchildren, Alex, Charlie, and Addison. The grandchildren share many happy memories of piling onto Jerry’s favorite recliner to spend time with their beloved Poppa.

Jerry was a life-long Baptist, who enjoyed teaching the men’s bible study classes at Southern Pines First Baptist. He led a life of deep faith and commitment to his church families, most recently at Hope Valley Baptist Church.

Jerry was a man of grace, strength, and wisdom, and truly will be missed.
