    Cora, Reeda, Pat , Cletus & Family,
    Jerry’s smile will be forever embedded in my heart and always when I go to Ole Hickory for bar-b-que I will think of him and how much he enjoyed it. Reeda, you will always have so many wonderful memories. He will truly be missed. Greer family you are in our thoughts & prayers.

  2. Hilda Davis Spradlin says:

    i did my student teaching with Mr. Greer at Barren County High. He was a true professional who touched many lives. He had a sign up that said “A lack of planning on your part does not constitute an emergency on my part.” That’s something I tell my students all the time. So rest assured, his influence lives on and is being passed on! I’m praying for God’s comfort to his family during the days ahead.

  3. Brenda Rogers Reece says:

    As a former student at Park City, I remember Jerry’s smile. Over the years he has always taken the time to say “Hello” when we would meet around town. He always had a smile and I am sure he will be missed. Please know that you are in my thoughts and prayers.
