Mr. Glen Neighbors

Mr. Glen 2

Mr. Jerry Glen Neighbors, age 69 of Franklin, Georgia passed away on November 28, 2014 at the Tanner Hospital in Carrollton, Georgia.

Funeral services for Mr. Neighbors were conducted on Sunday November 30, 2014, at 2:00 P.M. from the Centralhatchee Baptist Church with the Reverends Talmadge Chandler, and Mark Williams officiating.

Music was provided by Rita Loftin, Hiram Buchanan, Davis Vaughn, and Shelia and Mark Shelnutt.

Those serving as pallbearers were Don Holmes, Joel Smith, Lee Boone, Jarett Gray, Alton North, and Aiden North.

Honorary pallbearers were Sammy Hannah, Danny Lavoie (in honor of Pete Lavoie), and Joel Duke. The interment followed in the church cemetery.

Mr. Neighbors was born in Heard County Georgia on August 23, 1945, the son of the late Alma Crockett Neighbors and Lonnie Ben Neighbors.

After high school he served his country honorably during the Vietnam Conflict. For his gallantry he received the MDSM, EXP (45 Pistol), VCM, VSM, 2 o/s Bars, and ARCOM awards.

After returning from his war service he began his work career at the William L. Bonnell Company, Inc.  He was a good, steady worker whose work ethic helped him to constantly be given  more responsibility. His position in Production and Control earned him the respect of his fellow workers and company officials.

It was not long before he became the Assistant Traffic Manager. At his retirement he had been transferred to the Builders Transport Company where he became the Traffic Manager.

“Mr. Glen” was a kind, gentle man who spoke with a calm voice. One could not be around him long before you knew the drive behind his life was his love for his wife, children, and grandchildren.

Wherever his family was participating in any event Mr. Glen was among the crowd cheering them. The lessons he taught and the love he gave to both family and co-workers will leave a permanent mark on each life he touched.

He is survived by his beloved wife, Jackie Sims Neighbors of Franklin, GA.; two daughters, Lisa North (Alton) of Carrollton, GA., and Leslie Kersey of Franklin, GA.; one son, David Neighbors (Tara) of Franklin, GA.; mother-in-law, Myrtle Sims also of Franklin, GA., three sisters, Grace Purvis of West Monroe, LA., Ruth Jackson, and Jeanette Williamson both of Douglasville, GA.; and eleven adored grandchildren.

He was preceded in death by one brother, Harvey Neighbors.
