Message From The Family

Thank you for your support during this difficult time. Special thanks to COL. Rankin & Joy, MSG Vertis Richardson & Anita, DOL team, and all the medical staff engaged in his care. Please enhance this tribute to Jerry by adding your memories & photos.

Jerry was born in Villa Rica, GA to James Clifford Chism and Margaret Gates (Henry (Dude) Evans (Stepfather))who have preceded him in death.

He is the son-in-law of Lucy McDonald who currently lives in Tampa FL.

Jerry leaves behind a wife of 40 years, Angelia, and they raised and affected the lives of five children Terence, Danrick, Stacy, Candace and Stephanie.

He was one of eleven children and the brother of Juanita Brown (John Brown), Ruthie Merrill (Buford Merrill), Marie Chivers (Fernando Chivers), Sandra Evans, Janice Lemon (Alex Lemon), Henry Evans (Audrey Evans), Lois Evans, Stanley Evans (Tracy Evans), Barry Evans (Christy Evans) and Darion Evans (Mary Evans).

He is the nephew of Jimmie Lou Dobbs, Mildred Moore and Beulah Mae Hindesman (Gradie Hindesman) who live in GA.

Jerry retired after 30 years of service in the US Army and 15 years of civilian service. He loved his country, his family & friends (of which there are many) and will be sorely missed by each and every one.

We ask that you remember his logic, practicality, wit, humor, charm and first and foremost his dedication to the Lord our God, JESUS, who has granted him rest.

Jerry will be laid to rest in the Bay Pines National Cemetery located at 10000 Bay Pines Blvd., in Saint Petersburg, FL 33708 with full honors.
