Jerry Arley Echols, 79, was born on September 4, 1942, in Atlanta, Tx and passed into the arms of the angels on December 5, 2021, in Longview, TX.
Jerry was a good man with a heart as big as the world. He cared about his family more than he cared for himself. He was, by nature, a protector and a friend. He taught his children, by example, real values; hard work, Family First, being honest in all that you do and say, and to love God. He was a humble man who proudly served his beloved country in the United States Army. He was his son, Danny’s, hero.
Jerry is survived by his wife, Sandra Echols, of Gilmer; children, Christy Diane Larkin, Jerry Daniel "Danny" Echols and wife, Donelle, James Frost, Brian Frost and wife, Myrna, and Dawn Easley and husband, John; brothers, Dan Echols and wife Judy, and Paul Echols and wife, Tammy, and an abundance of grandchildren and great-grandchildren.
Jerry is preceded in death by his father, Roy Echols; his mother, Dorothy Burdett; a daughter, Crystal Dawn Echols; brothers, Frank Amos, Calvin Amos, Gene Amos, Arley Echols, and Bill Belyeu; and sisters, Marie Echols and Mae Belle Billinglslea.
The Celebration of Life service for Mr. Jerry Echols will be held on Sunday, at 2:00 PM in the Chapel at Croley Funeral Home- Gilmer.
