Obituary for Bobby Sherrill Jernigan

Mr. Bobby Sherrill Jernigan, 75, of Dunn died Tuesday evening November 27, 2018 at the SECU Hospice House in Smithfield.  Bobby was born July 8, 1943 in Harnett County, son of the late Robert Hughes and Sallie Lee Jernigan.

Bobby was a lover of God & church, farm & family, and Sampson County & the NC Coast.  He loved his friends, as well.  Visiting with his farming friends was a daily routine.  He even had a reserved stool for his sitting and talking pleasure at Harnett Trading Co..  Bobby will be remembered by his family and friends for his sense of humor, generosity, and lovingly imperfect and easy-going manner.  His daddy always said he was “like an old shoe.”  Bobby’s last weeks on earth were filled with physical suffering, but his family thanks our wonderful Lord and Savior Jesus Christ for giving him a certain, better life in Heaven.

A funeral service will be held at 3 p.m. Friday, November 30, 2018 at Stoney Run Pentecostal Free Will Baptist Church with Rev. Rick Kelly & Dr. Preston Heath officiating. Burial will follow in the church cemetery.

Bobby is survived by his wife, Dianne Newton Jernigan; son, Lee P. Jernigan (Gail) of Surf City; daughters, Lorie D. Jernigan (Terry) of Sneads Ferry and Carol J. Strickland (Tom) of Dunn; grandchildren, Cori J. Greeley (Thomas), Naylor Strickland, Erin Strickland, Jordan Lockamy, Layton Jernigan, Drake Strickland, J.D. Lockamy, Brycen Jernigan; five great grandchildren; brother, Connie H. Jernigan (Butchie) of Dunn and many loving extended family members.

The family will receive friends 6-8 p.m. Thursday at Skinner & Smith Funeral Home.

Memorials may be made to Stoney Run Pentecostal Free Will Baptist Church Building Fund, 12481 Harnett- Dunn Hwy., Dunn, N.C. 28334.
