Jerry Dwight is lovingly remembered by his family as one of the funniest storytellers of all time. He enjoyed gardening, was an avid history reader and was a great political debater. He served in the Army National Guard from 1964-1966.

No family gathering will be the same without our precious Jerry, and his stories will be terribly missed.

Arrangements entrusted to Scottsboro Funeral Home.
