Jerry Greer, the son of country music singer Craig Morgan, will be laid to rest this Saturday (July 16). Fans, friends and family can say their goodbyes on Friday evening at the Walnut Street Church of Christ (201 Center Avenue, Nashville). The funeral will take place 11AM Saturday morning at Covenant Presbyterian Church.
Jerry died in an underwater tubing accident. He was only 19 years-old. Jerry was one of three sons Craig Morgan and wife Karen have together, in addition to a daughter, Aly Beaird. Greer also leaves behind a sister-in-law, brother-in-law and three nieces and nephews.
This is Jerry's orbituary: "Jerry was the smile that instantly lit up any room. He was a superstar without even trying. He was a natural athlete that accomplished what most spend a lifetime attempting to achieve. He was a devoted and dedicated son, brother and friend. He loved his God, his family, his friends and his country more than anything. His passions were football, soccer and the outdoors. He will be greatly missed by everyone who came in contact with him. He will be forever in our thoughts, in our words, and in our hearts."
Fans hoping to help the family are asked to make donations to the Jerry Greer Memorial Scholarship "to honor Jerry's energy, athleticism, and love of life," the Tennessean reports. Funds will assist future Dickson High athletes - particularly those with dyslexia. Donations should be sent to: Tri-Star Bank 719 East College St., Dickson, Tenn., 37055.
