Jerry Dwight Latham, 76 of Scottsboro passed away Sunday, April 19, 2020. A private graveside service was held for the family.
Jerry Dwight is lovingly remembered by his family as one of the funniest storytellers of all time. He enjoyed gardening, was an avid history reader and loved a good political debate. He served in the Army National Guard from 1964-1966. No family gathering will ever be the same without our precious Jerry, and his stories will be terribly missed.
Jerry is survived by his children, Chris (Jackie) Cooper, Tim Cooper, Steve (Marlene) Thrasher, Joey (Teresa) Roberts, Tanya Benton, Bellamy (Eddie) Gibbs; siblings, Wanda Latham Lentz, Carol Latham (Ron) Greenwood, Judy Latham Swindall, Deborah Latham (Arno) Torrez, Kita Latham (Gary) Maddux, Raymond Latham, Jr., Rayford (Meta) Latham; 14 grandchildren; seven great-grandchildren.
He was preceded in death by his daughter, Teresa Latham; parents, Raymond and Ruth Bellomy Latham.
