Dedicated Music Teacher
Dr. Jerryl Davis Dies at Age 60
He had the patience to deal with the more particular members of the woodwind
family; give him an oboe or a bassoon, and Jerryl Davis was at home.
His generous spirit — and love of music — will be among things friends and
family members will recall at Dr. Davis’ funeral Monday in Hopkinsville, Ky. He
died Wednesday in southern Kentucky after a lengthy illness, according to
friends and family members.
“Jerryl has been here forever, it seems, in a great way,” said Robert
Childers, pastor of Grace Episcopal Church, where Davis played the organ. “He
was certainly well loved by the choir and the people.”
At Jacksonville State University, members of the music department faculty
will hold a service at a later time, said Legare McIntosh, who remembered his
colleague as a dedicated teacher of music and music theory.
Davis passed along that love of music in the classroom and the church he
served. He had taught at JSU since 1975. See story at The Anniston Star's website: www.annistonstar.com.
