Jerry Jerome Gillean

— Jerry Jerome Gillean, 50, of Villanow, passed away in Savannah on Wednesday, Feb. 12, 2014.

He was preceded in death by his parents, Earlene and Donald Pilcher.

Survivors include his sister and brother-in-law, Sherry and Larry Yaughn; a niece, Kori; a nephew, Heath; Cortney Martin, with whom he had a special father/daughter relationship; and aunts, uncles, Rollins cousins, his beloved pet, Rowdy, and many longtime friends who loved him dearly.

Born May 14, 1963, he was born to hunt, travel the country, cook, charm, humor and entertain those around him. He never met a stranger. Despite his roots and love for the Georgia mountains, he thoroughly enjoyed his travels as a long-haul trucker. He was an avid hunter, and his fondest memories were being with his lifelong best friend, Leland O’Bryant.

A private ceremony will be held in honor of his life.
