Jerry Wayne Hearn, 67 passed away unexpectedly September 7 after a short illness at Advent Hospital in Daytona Beach.
Jerry was born July 8, 1955, in Anniston, Alabama to Billy Ray and Bobbie Hearn. The family moved to Pensacola, Florida when Jerry was a young boy and then eventually the family settled in the Daytona Beach area.
Jerry graduated from Mainland High School class of 1973. He worked at Pantry Pride Supermarket for many years finally becoming a manager.
Shortly before leaving Pantry Pride Jerry met Bob Sirois who would become his partner and on Christmas Day 2016 his husband. They started a cleaning service together that Jerry continued with after Bob joined Votran.
After Jerry retired, he and Bob enjoyed their dogs, some traveling, live musical theater and scouring antique shops and thrift stores for hidden treasures.
Jerry was predeceased by his father Billy Hearn, his mother Bobbie Hearn and his brothers Allen and James Michael Hearn.
Jerry is survived by his partner and husband of over 40 years Bob Sirois, his sister-in-law Eleanor Hearn, his brothers Robert (Nancy) and Randy Hearn. Jerry had a special place in his heart for his nieces and nephews, Joshua, Jesse (Kayla Largent) and John Hearn, Elisa Baker, Amy (Paul Watts) and BobbiJo Beach (Fulmer Collins) and Kristina (Mike) Goris and his treasured great nieces and nephews. Jerry is also survived by many special friends including Mike Ferrie, Santiago Ramirez, Betty Crooms and Grace Hart. And of course, our beloved dogs Tyler, Bart and Lisa were surely waiting at the end of the Rainbow Bridge for Jerry.
