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.
