He was born in Lebanon, Tn., on April 19, 1952, a son of the late Ivel and Lorene Marmon. Jerry attended Lebanon High School where he played football and basketball. Jerry was a carpenter and all around handyman who could build anything and enjoyed building dream catchers. He loved fishing, talking about the Lord and world events with people and would do anything for anybody. He loved people and helping his fellow man, but most of all he loved his family.

Along with his parents he is preceded in death by his brothers: Joe Marmon, John Marmon, Carl Marmon, and Phillip Marmon as well as niece Kelly Ashworth and two nephews Nicky Gann and Steve Marmon.

A celebration of his life is planned for Wednesday, June 13, at 3 p.m. in the chapel of Companion Funeral Home at 2419 Georgetown Road NW in Cleveland, with Pastor Guinn Green officiating.

The family will receive friends on Wednesday at the funeral home from 10a.m. until the 3 p.m. service time. 

Interment will follow in the Lebanon Baptist Church cemetery in Cleveland, with Joseph Lowe, Jerad Fox, James Hesson, Chad Longshore, Michael Coronado, Andrew Dodson, Martin Coronado, Diego Coronado and David Dotson serving as pallbearers.
