Obituary for Fred Jackson

DURHAM: Fred Jackson, 75, passed away on Sunday, October 28, 2018 at his home in Durham related to complications of FTL Dementia. He was born in Roxboro, the son of the late Herbert F.

Mr. Jackson retired from Kroger after 34 years of service. He was a member of Guess Road Baptist Church for over 10 years where he served as deacon. Mr. Jackson was an avid competitor, participating in three sports during his years at Person High School. He still holds a football record at Person for the longest fumble recovery for a touchdown (75 yards). He also loved tennis, square dancing, yard work, traveling, woodworking, church softball and taking care of his grand dogs. Mr. Jackson was a hardworking, simple man who showed love and care to others by doing simple acts of service.
