Mars Hill - Jerry Earl Swartout, 60, of 345 Manor Road, went to be with the Lord on Sunday, April 7, 2019 at the Madison Manor Health and Rehabilitation Center.

A resident of Asheville, he was the son of Quinn Jerry Swartout of Wagram, NC and the late Elsie Mae Rusfeldt Swartout.

Jerry was well loved by his family and he loved them. He often found humor in the different and difficult situations of life. He was quite the joker and would get tickled even at his own jokes. Jerry was an unforgettable character and he will live on big in our hearts!
