Jerry Lassiter

July 10, 1933 — November 5, 2022

Jerry Corbett Lassiter, 89, husband of Judy Yothers Lassiter and a resident of Capeville, VA, passed away Saturday, November 5, 2022 at his home surrounded by love. Jerry was born in Aulander, NC to the late Emlius Tearthur Lassiter and the late Clyde Smith Lassiter. He proudly served his country in the United States Air Force for four years and then became a member of the Air Force Reserve. He retired after 30 years from Langley Air Force Base as a Logistics Management Specialist, Director of Programs, and Deputy Chief of Staff of Plans and Programs. Still needing to be active, Jerry worked until the age of 80 working for 20 years at Kiptopeke State Park in the maintenance department. Jerry was a member of Capeville United Methodist Church and was also a former Sunday School Teacher. All who knew Jerry also knew of his love of gardening and sharing his crops with others. How he found the time to do it all, we will never know.
