Jerry Cleveland Vaughn, 67, passed away peacefully on August 7, 2015 at the Elizabeth House in Flat Rock, NC. Mr. Vaughn was a son of the late Austin and Maxie Giddens Vaughn. A resident of Henderson County for the past 10 years, he had previously resided in Indianapolis, IN, Orange Park, FL, and Charlotte, NC; however, he always remembered his roots in Telfair County, GA.

Mr. Vaughn retired as a manager for Walmart Supercenter following 27 years of dedicated service. He was very proud of his service, in the United States Navy, as an aircraft mechanic and sonar operator during the Vietnam era. He reached the rank of E4 during his tenure. He possessed a magnetic personality and never met a stranger. Mr. Vaughn will be remembered by all who knew him for his unquenchable thirst for life.

He is survived by his beloved partner, Penny Gentry; sons, Austin (Bobby Jo) Vaughn, Nicholas (Courtney) Vaughn and Zachery Vaughn; daughter, McRae (Ross) Courage; grandchildren, Anna, Allison, Lilly, Joel, Jet and was anticipating the birth of another grandson in September. He is also survived by his sister, Phyllis (Bill) Campbell; aunts, Mattie Lou Vaughn Cravey and Tilda Giddens Ray; uncle, Chester Giddens; several nieces, nephews, and cousins.

    Jerry was a truly great man, human being and friend. I am heartbroken about his passing. He taught me more life changing lessons in the few years he was my Store Manager than anyone has since. His knowledge to share his wisdom made him an amazing leader. We all have lost a great man. May you teach me in a different way, Jerry from the heavens. Sending my love and comforting thoughts to you all during this most difficult time, Cheryl
