Obituary of Jerry Norman Dover
Jerry Norman Dover, 81, of Elgin, passed away on Wednesday, December 28, 2022. Born in Charlotte, NC, he was the son of the late Jabel Cecil and Nancy Orilla Dover and the husband of Carolyn Norma McLeod Dover. Jerry loved to tinker and work with his hands, always taking things apart and fixing them again. This passion led to a rewarding career in construction as a Punchlist Coordinator. He enjoyed building things, especially when those projects involved spending time with his grandchildren. Jerry was an avid reader, collector, and do-it-yourselfer. He also loved animals, especially his cats. Above all, Jerry loved his family and cherished the time he spent with his wife, son, and grandchildren.
In addition to his wife of 59 years, Jerry is survived by his son, Ronnie Dover (Karen); grandchildren, Nicholas Dover, Christopher Dover, Travis Dover, and Gary Ware; and great-grandchildren, Tyler, Cameron, Jade, Jordinn, and Cruz.
In addition to his parents, Jerry was preceded in death by his granddaughter, Courtney Ware.
