Jerry was preceded in death by his maternal grandfather, Osburn "Boot" Turner and paternal grandmother, Pearline Strickland.

He worked for Fun Products where he was a motorcycle salesman. He was a member of the Fundamental Baptist Church of Goldsboro.

He is survived by his mother, Donnie Turner of Goldsboro; his father and stepmother, Jerry Paschall Strickland Sr. and Trudy Strickland of Durham; his maternal grandmother, Doris Godwin Turner of Princeton; his paternal grandfather, Henry Lewis Strickland of Grantham; two aunts, Barbara Lynn Turner of Goldsboro and Darlene Price of Seven Springs; an uncle, Terry Strickland of Kenly; a special friend and her daughter, Jennifer Diehl and Melinda; a half brother, Jeffrey Strickland of Durham; and a stepbrother, Jimmy Van Auken of Durham.

The family will receive friends Wednesday (today) from 6 until 8 p.m. at Casey Funeral Home, and other times at the home of Doris Turner at 150 Arrowhead Drive, Princeton.
