Jerry Alan Hiers, 60, passed away Wednesday, July 3, 2019. He was born on May 27, 1959 in McRae, Georgia to Gene Kennedy Hiers and Reba Nesbitt Hiers.
A devoted and loving husband and father, he leaves behind his wife Beth and two beautiful daughters, Savanah and Maddie; surviving father and mother, Gene and Reba Hiers of Macon; sister, Regina Young of Perry (Bubba and Riley Young); brother, Gainer Hiers of Picayune, Mississippi (Dorothy Jacobs, and James Hiers), mother and father-in-law, Tom and Ruth Potterfield of Savannah.
Jerry made friends wherever he lived. From his early years in South Georgia to Louisiana, to South Carolina, before settling in Sandestin, Florida. His quick wit and easy-going demeanor were the hallmarks of his personality. An avid sportsman, Jerry was an exceptional tennis player who went on to become a teaching professional who loved giving lessons and bringing people to the game. Later he became a successful entrepreneur and real estate investor. The enduring joy of his life came from his wife and two daughters. He was also a follower of Jesus Christ. His faith and his love for others was always on display. You could say Jerry never met a stranger and all that knew him would tell you that upon meeting him for the first time, they’d considered him a friend. He will be missed by countless friends and family members but never forgotten.
