Mr. Jerry J. O’Neal departed this life after a short illness on May 26, 2023. He was born August 21, 1954, to Mrs. Carrie Davis O’Neal and the late Jerry O’Neal. Jerry was affectionately known to his family and friends as “Do”. He graduated from Interlachen High School, Class of 1972.
Mr. O’Neal proudly served in the U.S. Army during the Vietnam Era and then continued to serve in the Florida Army Reserve. He was humble, kind, and man of few words. He loved his family and friends and was very caring to all of his nieces and nephews. He enjoyed reading, watching westerns and playing horseshoes. Some of his favorite TV shows were Star Trek, Bonanza, Little House on the Prairie, The Waltons, Mork & Mindy, and I dream of Jeanie.
