Mr. Jerry F. Lairsey, 58, died Sunday morning (April 8, 2018) at his residence after a courageous battle with cancer.

He was a native and lifelong resident of Waycross. Jerry attended Ware County High School and was a U.S. Army Veteran. He retired from BellSouth after becoming disabled. Jerry was an active member of Gilchrist Park United Methodist Church where he served as the music leader. His love for music and his beautiful voice enabled him to play in a band many years ago called Special Delivery. Jerry had an avid passion for fishing, hunting, Nascar and enjoying time with family and children. He loved his nieces, nephews and their children more than anything. Jerry was truly a blessing by taking care of his mother and father until they passed.
