Angry Jerry Grayson Jonesborough, GA passes away

Jerry had suffered several years with cancer, but after a long hard battle he passed away on the day after Thanksgiving. No other details available at this time. Jerry was active in both national and Regional affairs of the EFV8CA and the Ford Foundation. Jerry leaves a Widow, Gwen, three daughters, and a host of Ford lovers around the world. Farewell my friend.

Sorry to hear about this. I had seen several comments from Jerry and others who post here about his health problems. Rest in peace Mr Grayson.

Rest in Peace Jerry. It was an honor to know you. I enjoyed trading old Ford information with you over the years. You will be missed.

Jerry was a customer of mine in the 60's and 70's. When the v8 club was on the rise. He only used my nos parts on his cars. He will be missed by many.

Every time one of us moves on, it's a loss to the community. I didn't know Mr. Grayson but I do know that he will be missed. Band together, my brothers and sisters.

I'm saddened to hear your news Lawson. RIP Jerry.
We tried hard to get the EFV8C to continue on with the 35/36 Pickup you both worked on, shame our efforts fell on deaf ears.

Thanks Fe26. We lost a great man and a wealth of early Ford when Jerry died. I will certainly miss him. He was a super friend, MY BEST FRIEND.

I'm sorry to hear of his passing, but you all know that most of us are at an age that it could happen any time. Stay active and live happy as long as we can. Keep the old flatheads running as long as we can. Al
