Mr. Jerry McMillan, was the son of the late Mr. T.S. McMillan and the late Mrs. Flora Sealy McMillan. On August 30, 2021 at UNC Health Southeastern in Lumberton Jerry closed his eyes into a peaceful sleep to go home to be with his heavenly Father. Jerry attended school in Robeson County. He was skilled in textile/ mechanic. He worked at Lumberton Dying and Finishing for many years. He was also employed with Outer Banks in Lumberton. He loved to work with his hands. His passion was breaking down machines and repairing them again in the textile industry. Jerry had a meek spirit and he loved to sit at the feet of the elderly gathering vital information that he applied in his life. He was a keen observer and learned a lot just by listening. In 2015, Jerry was involved in a near death situation and after that ordeal he began ministering to people about God's goodness, because he was a miracle man. He loved the Lord and was not ashamed of the gospel of Jesus Christ. Jerry loved helping people in need. He had a kind heart and a sweet spirit. Jerry was baptized in the name of Jesus, and was a faithful member of the New Covenant Church Of Christ in Dillon, South Carolina under the leadership of Pastor Eddie Watson.

There have been times, when you didn't have any time and yet you took time.There have been times, when you had enough cares of your own and yet you cared. There have been times, when you had given all you had to give and yet you kept giving. There have been times, when you could have stopped but you kept going.
