Obituary: Jerry Lewis

Kinston- Jerry Lewis, 78, passed away on Monday, May 9, 2022. The family will receive friends on Thursday, May 12, 2022, from 5pm to 7pm at Edwards Funeral Home. Jerry and his sister, Jeanette, grew up in Kinston. Many of his friends were older boys, and Jerry would tell the story about how his friends “taught” him how to swim by throwing him into a creek and leaving him to sink or swim. He always enjoyed cooking and entertaining guests. His fish stews, barbequed pigs and chicken are legendary. Cars were another passion of his. Jerry loved working on them and spent several years racing at the drag strip. He was a big fan of Richard Petty and Dale Earnhardt. Jerry was always hardworking, probably because his parents taught him good work ethics. Jerry worked with his father in the plumbing industry. Later, even though he had a full-time job, Jerry also assisted his parents at their family’s store. Jerry was probably best known as the “Bread Man,” since he worked many years and retired Merita Bread Company.
