Jerry Darrell Hughes

Jerry Darrell Hughes, age 81 of Roswell, GA, passed away, Thursday, April 9, 2020 at his residence.
A native of Canton, GA born on April 13, 1938, he was a son of the late Clifford M. Hughes and Nannie Opal  Hughes and was preceded in death by a daughter, Heidi L. Hughes Ridgeway; Brothers, Carl Hughes of East Ridge, Clifford Hughes of NC;  Sisters, Dorthy Waycaster and Ruth Gore of NC, Thelma McCoy of Rossville, GA and Hulda Padgett of Chattanooga and also several nieces and nephews.
Jerry was a true "Craftsman".  He enjoyed his profession, as a care salesman for Merceded Benz and also enjoyed wood working and traveling.  People like Jerry are the backbone of this country and I think the world wants to hear their stories.  
He is survived by his wife of 44 years, Alice Howard Hughes;
1 daughter, Priscilla Hughes House;
5 grandchildren, Ashley, Travis, Jeramy, Chris and Melinda Curtis.
Graveside Services were 3:00 PM, Saturday, April 11, 2020 at Upper Spring Creek Cemetery with his nephew David Shelton officiating.
Those unable to attend may send condolences to www.laycockhobbs.com/notices/Jerry-Hughes.  Laycock-Hobbs Funeral Home in Athens was in charge of the arrangements.
