NEWPORT NEWS - Jerry Lee Londeree, 82, was welcomed into his eternal home by his Lord and Savior Jesus Christ on Sunday, December 10, 2017.

He was a lifelong Peninsula resident until 1997 when he and his wife, Georgia, enjoyed retirement at The Villages in Florida.

Jerry enjoyed serving the Lord at Liberty Baptist Church where he was a longtime member.

He was a skilled athlete who loved golf, baseball, and was an avid UVA fan. His passions included spending time with his family, his favorite dog Pebbles, sports, and bringing a smile to a child's face.

 

 
 

 


His great-grandchildren filled his last years with much joy.

Survivors include his two daughters, Brenda L. Hedrick and her husband Greg, of Poquoson, and Darlene Kay Londeree of Mechanicsville; one sister, Mildred Hinnant of Newport News; four grandchildren, Staci Angel Hahr and her husband Paul, Bobby Hedrick and his wife Christine, Krista Keefe and her husband Jonathan, and Ryann Lowery and her fiancé Andrew Bailey; and four great-grandchildren, Calleigh, Canon, Caden and Cambrey Hedrick.

He was preceded in death by his wife of 52 years, Georgia Stroup Londeree; a son, Jerry Lee "Bob" Londeree, Jr.; and a granddaughter, Terri Lee Angel.

Visitation will be from 4 to 5 PM Thursday, December 14, 2017 at Liberty Baptist Church, with a memorial service immediately following at 5 PM with Pastor Joe Hunt officiating.

In lieu of flowers, the family requests memorial donations to Liberty Baptist Church for the Forward Initiative fund, 1021 Big Bethel Road, Hampton, VA 23666.

Shall We Gather at the River

Words and Music by Rev. Robert Lowry (1826-1899)
 

 Shall we gather at the river,
Where bright angel feet have trod;
With its crystal tide forever
Flowing by the throne of God?

Chorus

Yes, we'll gather at the river,
The beautiful, the beautiful river;
Gather with the saints at the river
That flows by the throne of God.

On the margin of the river,
Washing up its silver spray,
We will walk and worship ever,
All the happy golden day.

Chorus

Ere we reach the shining river,
Lay we every burden down;
Grace our spirits will deliver,
And provide a robe and crown.

Chorus

Soon we'll reach the shining river,
Soon our pilgrimage will cease,
Soon our happy hearts will quiver
With the melody of peace.
