NEWARK: A Celebration of Life service for Jerry Byrd, 59 of Newark, OH will be held at 11:00 a.m., Monday, February 17, at the Shiloh Missionary Baptist Church, Newark, with Rev. Dr. Michael A. Noble officiating. Following the service a luncheon will be served at the Church.

Jerry Byrd went home to be with his LORD and Savior on Saturday February 1, 2014 in his home. He was a blessed 59 years old. He was born on January 28, 1955 in Selma, Alabama to the late Huston and Mary Lee (Smiley) Byrd.

He was a graduate of Newark High School. Jerry was employed at Arvin Meritor for 18 years. Mr. Byrd was an active member of Shiloh Missionary Baptist Church where he was the coordinator of the Young David's and a Sunday School Teacher. He was a fun, loving and gentle humble Father, Brother and Uncle. His smile and presence could light up the room.

Jerry did not like the cold weather, but when the weather warmed up, he could always be found outdoors. He loved sports and was a loyal Cleveland Browns fan.

He leaves to cherish his memories: son, Andre (Jamie) Johnson, of Heath, Ohio; daughter: Siedah Byrd of Columbus, Ohio; son: Zachary Byrd of Newark, Ohio; three sisters: Lillian (Henry) Spivey of Newark, Ohio, Christine (Carl) Roddy, of Columbus, Ohio; Melody Byrd, of Newark, Ohio, two brothers; Houston Byrd, Jr. of Newark, Ohio and Chauncey Byrd of West Palm, Florida; 8 Grandchildren, many loving Aunts, Uncles, Nieces, Nephews and Cousins.

He was preceded in death by his parents.
