It is with great sadness that we announce our father, Jerry Lewis Admire, passed away on February 23, 2021, at the age of 72 years due to complications from strokes.
A native of Abingdon, IL, Jerry had moved to Mount Juliet, TN with his wife and children in 1984. From there, he and his wife resided in St. Croix USVI and finally settled in Fountain Inn, SC until her death in 2016. His most recent residence was at his daughter’s home in Lebanon TN, where she was his caregiver for the final stages of his life.
Jerry was a naval veteran where he served prior to starting his family in 1970. He was retired from manufacturing and enjoyed fishing, watching movies and traveling, with a special interest in cruising.
He is survived by his daughter, Denise, son Robert (Sara) and grandchildren Logan (John) Rodman, Brandon Admire, Kaylee Admire, and one great-grandchild Chelsea Ann Rodman. He is preceded in death by his wife of 46 years, Ann Therese Admire.
A celebration of Jerry’s life will be held at a later date to be determined. Please consider making a donation to the American Stroke Association in his honor in lieu of flowers.
