Jerry Richard Owen, age 75, a God-Fearing Christian man of Brevard, NC, made his heavenly journey on February 21, 2020. He was the loving husband of Brenda Wise Owen. They shared almost 50 years of marriage. He was the example of an extraordinary husband, daddy, granddaddy, and friend. Jerry was a special man with a calling as a helper of mankind. He loved, lived, and felt blessed and thankful for every day. He always appreciated his time he spent with family, friends, and his four legged friends.

Born in Lake Toxaway he was the son of Vincent Corbin and Elizabeth Lee Owen. He had seven siblings; three brothers, Jack (deceased), Joe, and Jimmy (deceased) and four sisters, Jean (deceased), Joann, Jonnie, and Jeanette.

He graduated from Tamassee DAR School. In the Army, he was stationed at Fort Jackson, SC where he met the love of his life. Most of his career was at Dupont. He was an early entrepreneur and had an extremely strong work ethic his whole life.

To those who knew him please remember his sense of humor and smiling heart. He left his family with many wonderful memories and there was always lots of laughter. Jerry was a great patriarch for his family and the characteristics that he helped instill in his loved ones will always be part of his legacy.

Jerry Owen will be greatly missed by his loving wife Brenda and family. He was a loving father to his children daughter Sandra (Lane) Owen and son David (Anna) Owen. He was a very proud Granddaddy and their Biggest Fan to three awesome grandsons: Austin Anders, Cole Owen, and Braelon Owen.

He will be fondly remembered by a brother, sisters, nieces, nephews, extended family, friends, church family and beagle family.

Memorial services will be held Wednesday, February 26, 2020, visitation at 11:00 am and funeral services at 12:00 pm at Moody-Connolly Funeral Home and Crematory, Brevard, NC.

In lieu of flowers, the family would ask that you do an unexpected and unsolicited act of kindness for someone in need in Jerry’s name. Jerry was a man always trying to help others and would love for others to do the same. If you would like to make a monetary donation please send funds to The Cindy Platt Boys and Girls Club in Transylvania County. This club has always held a special place in his heart.

When I think of Jerry Owen I think of a kind spirited man. He was always working on something and loving those Beagles. He loved his family and his sweet wife Brenda she was always by his side. He will be remembered by every life he touched. My heart goes out to Brenda, Sandra and family my sweet Nephew Austin and Lil David and his wife. Sending you Love and Prayers.

I was in my early 20’s when I went to work at DuPont. Jerry was one of the first Sr Operators that I worked for. From day one I knew he had a kind soul. He helped me in so many ways, both work and personally. My condolences to the family. Jerry was a great man and loved by many.

To my wonderful uncle, Jerry has always been one of those uncle's that can't be replaced. From the days that he spent coming to visit my dad Fred during his illness at Torres home, to the countless hours I spent following him around in the woods, brush and briar patches rabbit hunting. Jerry had the gift of knowing where the rabbits would be at. He taught me much about not only rabbit hunting but more so understanding how to appreciate family and friends. Jerry I as many will miss you dearly, however only for a short time. We will meet again in heaven. Love you Uncle Jerry. Dean Galloway
