Jerry Towry

December 5, 1939 — June 3, 2024

In loving memory of Jerry D. Towry

Jerry D. Towry, a beloved husband, father, and grandfather, passed away on June 3, 2024, at his home in Springville, Alabama, at the age of 84.

He was born on December 5, 1939, in Birmingham, Alabama, to Clarence and Mildred (Smith) Towry.

Jerry dedicated all 36 years of his honorable service to the Alabama Army National Guard 107th 307th F company 131st aviation battalion army national guard in Birmingham, Alabama. Jerry served as one of the first crew chiefs on the CH-54 Skycrane helicopters and retired after serving as NCOIC field maintenance team flight engineer.

Jerry was a devoted husband to his wife of 37 years, Sharon M. Towry. He is survived by his son, David Towry (Kelly); Matt Davis (Annette) of Pinson; Julia Herndon (Larry Lackey) of Trussville; and Emily Towry Ford (Richard); 14 grandchildren and 5 great grandchildren. Those that knew Jerry best know that we would be remiss not to list his beloved Cocoa who crossed the Rainbow Bridge before him, still surviving dog Lulu, cats Missy and Yoda.

He spent his weekends boating and camping with friends. Whether at home or outdoors, his dedication to his passions was unwavering. Jerry will be deeply missed, especially by his wife, children, friends, and church community. He imparted invaluable lessons on honor, integrity, love, and commitment to all. The memories and anecdotes he shared will continue to be treasures for all who were fortunate enough to have crossed paths with him.

Jerry's kindness, love, and dedication to his family and his country will be deeply missed. He leaves behind a legacy of love and service that will be cherished by all who knew him. Visitation will be Monday, June 10th from 1:00-2:00 at the Church of the Holy Cross Episcopal, Trussville with funeral following.
