Jerry Wayne “JW” Locklear, loving son of Lillie Mae Clark Locklear and the late Arnold Wilson Locklear, Sr., was born April 11, 1959 in Robeson County, North Carolina. After a long and courageous battle with cancer, Jerry passed away at the age of 64 on September 9, 2023.
JW had a long career with the Campbell Soup Company retiring after 34 years of dedicated service in the shipping department. He served his community as a volunteer fireman with the Stewartsville Fire Department and proudly led as their Fire Chief for two years. Before his illness, JW was a faithful and active member of the New Hope Baptist Church where he was so thankful to have had a part in helping with the construction of the Sanctuary. He also enjoyed camping trips with family, gardening, and servicing and repairing lawn mowers. JW’s happiest times were those shared with his family.
