Jerry Wayne DeHart

May 17, 1964 — March 17, 2024


Jerry Wayne DeHart, age 59, of Asheboro passed away on March 17, 2024.

Mr. DeHart was born in Randolph County on May 17, 1964.  He was a jack of all trades, and was formerly employed as a truck driver, with the City of Asheboro, Lowe’s Hardware, and as a farmhand working in tobacco.  Jerry was preceded in death by his brother, Brian Kidd, and sister, Tamara Kidd.  Jerry was a humble and kind gentleman. His love for his son overflowed and was boundless.  He was very friendly and positive.  He always kept his heart on his sleeve and would give his shirt off his back to those in need.  With a smile that could light up a room, he had a way of chatting with anyone, turning strangers into friends by the time they said goodbye.  Jerry enjoyed playing golf and traveling to the beach and White Lake.  Whenever a free moment occurred you could catch him enjoying a game or 3 of Galaga.

He is survived by his son, Cole DeHart (Shelby Calderon) of Dallas, NC; fiancée, Myressa Rich of Asheboro; and mother, Eva Frances DeHart Kidd of Asheboro.
