Gerald "Jerry" Edward Moffit

November 21, 1928 — July 24, 2023

Webster Springs

Gerald “Jerry” Edward Moffit, 94 of Webster Springs, passed away on Monday, July 24, 2023 at Liza’s Place in Wheeling. He was born November 21, 1928 in Dorrtown, Webster Springs, to the late Ray and Flora Nettie Wilfong Moffit.

Jerry was a United States Army Veteran and was proud of his military service. He served as Ward Master at Walter Reed Hospital in Washington DC; caring for the soldiers who were preparing to return home. He greatly appreciated his job serving the wounded soldiers.

He was an avid reader, enjoying the collection of Louis L’Amour who was his favorite author, but he enjoyed reading the Bible most of all. His favorite person to read about was Job. In his early years, Jerry enjoyed hunting and fishing, especially squirrel and pheasant. In his later years he just couldn’t bring himself to hunt because he couldn’t take away one of God’s creatures.

His passion was Rocky Bottom which was given to him by his father. He was always working to improve his property at Rocky Bottom and had many unfinished projects.

In addition to his parents, Jerry was preceded in death by his wife Goldie Edna Skeens Moffit; brothers Paul, Dale, and Lloyd Moffit; twin-sister Geraldine “Midge” Cochran; sisters Norma Skeens, Mary Wright, and Cora Moffit; and step-sister Virginia Hamrick.

He is survived by his son Tom (Debbie) Moffit; daughter Nancy Harding; grandchildren: Dwayne Stucky, Melanie (Cory) Thornton, Kristopher (Laurie) Moffit, and Michael (Kelly) Moffit; great-grandchildren: Breanna Wallace, Victoria Shawl, Marissa (John) Gojkovich, Kyle (Melissa) Moffit, Kody Moffit, Kory Moffit, Sophia Wyatt, Wylie Wyatt, and Nick Kelly; great-great-grandchildren: Miley Moffit, Kayden and Rayonna Shawl, and Kylan Wallace; and a host of extended family and friends to mourn his passing.
