Jerry Primes

Jerry Allen Primes, 61, of the Pine Community, passed away at his home Sunday, March 15, 2020. He was born Feb. 27, 1960.

Jerry was a skilled certified welder. He greatly enjoyed his work because it allowed him to travel. Throughout his career he traveled to all corners of the continental United States. While at home he enjoyed cooking food and boiling crawfish for his friends and family. Jerry cherished his parents and always found pleasure in spending time with them. His greatest joy was found in nature. He loved camping outdoors and was an avid hunter and fisherman. He will be dearly missed by all who knew and loved him.

Jerry is survived by his son, Jerry Alton Primes and Hannah of Franklinton; grandson, John William Alton Primes; mother, Elaine Luper Primes; brother, Jeffery A. Primes; sister, Janez Primes; three nephews and one niece; and also numerous aunts, uncles, and cousins.

He was preceded in death by his father, Alton Primes; sister-in-law, Cassidy Bush Primes; paternal grandparents, David Primes and Alice May Pierce Primes; and maternal grandparents, Lucious Luper and Inez Reviere Luper.

Jerry has requested services not be held in his memory. True to his outdoorsman spirit, he has requested his ashes be laid to rest at his favorite fishing spot.
