On August 1, 2021, at age 69, Jerry Lee Miller transitioned from the earth and peacefully ascended into the everlasting life. He now rests in the presence of Almighty God and the heavenly hosts. On November 16, 1951, Jerry was born in Salisbury NC to the late Ada Lily Ellis Miller Whitener and Cicero Correll. Jerry briefly resided in Massillon, Ohio but ultimately relocated to High Point, NC in his adolescent years. He graduated from High Point Central High School, Class of ’73. Upon completing high school, he enrolled in Guilford Technical Community College in pursuit of an associate degree in Welding Technology and obtained his certification. During his career as a Master Welder at Mickey Truck Bodies, Jerry was saluted as Master Welder of the month by the company leaders. He was known for being able to weld anything, and he did just that until he retired in 2014 after more than 3 decades in his chosen occupation. He enjoyed fishing, hunting, and listening to all types of music.
Jerry was a devoted man to his occupation and his family. He loved everyone, and his kindness and patience earned him many associates and friends who loved to be in his presence.
