Jerry Wayne Newlon, 67 of Moatsville, originally from Grafton, WV passed away on Thursday, November 5, 2020 after a long and courageous battle with cancer. He was born June 2, 1953, son of the late Martin Newlon and Virginia Sommerville. Jerry graduated from Grafton High School in 1971. He was employed by Rex Hide until the time of retirement. Jerry enjoyed the outdoors and spent his free time farming, riding horses, hunting, fishing, and sitting on the porch with his loving dogs, Beau, Lady Bird, Linda, Sis and Rosie. However, his favorite past time was spending time with his family. Jerry was an amazing husband, father, father in law, friend and brother but he was the greatest pappy in the world and wore that title proudly. Jerry was a kind and gentle soul and never knew a stranger.
