Jerry Wayne Sisk was 89 when he passed peacefully in his retirement living facility. He was very social, still reading and cracking his cute jokes until the days prior to his passing.

In the late 1960s the family moved to Macclenny, Florida. Jerry was the principal at Baker County High School for many years. He continued working in the School District holding many additional positions. He retired from the district after many amazing 29 years of service.

His favorite past times were spending time with family, watching sports, he was an avid reader and a huge football fan. He was very proud and blessed to be a father, grandfather, great grandfather, and great great grandfather. Jerry was a man of God, incredibly dedicated to serving the Lord and His flock. He was a compassionate man, unconditionally loving his family, church and all the students he mentored as principal. He lived life with passion for those hallmarks of his 89 years.
