Jerry Manuel Passmore, 74, of Ocean Isle Beach, North Carolina, passed away suddenly at Florida Hospital Celebration, Celebration, Florida on August 7, 2018. Jerry was a beautiful, loving, generous soul–a wonderful man, husband, father, brother, son-in-law, friend, senior advocate, colleague and a visionary leader. His youthful spirit, charisma, brilliance and boundless energy instantly drew people to him, yet it was his kindness, thoughtfulness, selflessness, strength and sincerity that defined his being. He will be lovingly remembered and dearly missed.

Survivors include his wife Jill Vernarsky Passmore; son Jerry Manuel Passmore, Jr. of Raleigh, N.C.; daughter Elizabeth Passmore Fleming and her husband Bradley of Batam, Indonesia; grandchildren Aspen, Kenan, Asher and Halia Fleming of Batam, Indonesia; brother Joe Dean Passmore and his wife Carolyn of Missouri City, Texas; father-in-law and mother-in-law, Paul and Paige Vernarsky; mother-in-law Ruth Ward, her son, daughter-in-law and grandchildren John, Suzanne, Liam and Melanie Evans; father-in-law Banner Shoe; sister-in-law Terrie Pearce and husband Jay; nephew Jeffery Hobbs and wife Lynn and family, nephew Steven Hobbs, wife Rachiel and daughter Kathy; niece Deanna Dickson, husband AJ and daughters Clarissa and Danielle; niece Joelyn Zamarron, husband Jason and daughter Chloe; niece Jaime Williams; niece Lindsay Arnold, husband Craig and son Camden; niece Alexandra Pearce; many other family, friends and colleagues; and his beloved Kitty Prada.

Jerry was preceded in death by his first wife, Deena Ward Passmore, his father Manuel Passmore, his mother Edna Oris Passmore, his sister Katherine Sue Mitchell, his mother-in-law Betty Shoe and father-in-law Robert “Bob” Ward.

    Jerry was one of my favorite home owners at Ocean Isle Beach, NC
    I have managed his property for 15 years, and through the years, we became friends. He asked me years ago if I would keep his plant while he and Jill were traveling. After learning his plant originally belonged to his mother, I fondly named her " Edna". This became an office joke when Edna came to visit.
    We also enjoyed our visits with Jerry and his " Kitty". Oh the stories he would share about this cat and how he loved him. He also loved the Senior Citizens of Orange County. His face would light up every time he spoke of them.
    We're going to miss Jerry and his cat, coming by just to say hello. Our lives are richer to have known such a Godly man, who loved the Lord. The last conversation I had with him was about learning to meditate on the word of God. Today we honor his memory, and also pray for his wife, Jill, whom he treasured. RIP to our good friend.
