Jerry Lendwood McArtan



Jerry Lendwood McArtan, 63, beloved husband, daddy, granddaddy, brother, and loyal friend left this earth way too soon, leaving a big hole in our hearts.

Jerry was born April 12, 1955 in Harnett County, NC and passed away peacefully on Sunday, October 28, 2018 at New Hanover Regional Medical Center after a brief bout with cancer.

He was predeceased by his parents, Ralph McArtan and Mary Alice Gurganious McArtan Lucas.

Left to cherish his memory are his beloved wife, Helen Louise Spencer McArtan; son, Ralph Thomas McArtan; daughters, Cyndy Smith (Richard), Donna Bradshaw and Jewel Caison (Robert); grandchildren, Alayne Webber, Dylan Smith, Kaelyn Barton, Zachary Chadwick, and Alyssa Caison; brothers, Ronnie McArtan, Daniel McArtan and John McArtan (Dale); many extended family; and wonderful friends.

Jerry chose brick laying as a career and was an excellent brick mason as long as his health permitted. Being outdoors enjoying all of God’s bountiful nature was a favorite pastime of Jerry’s. Jerry loved all his “critters”, especially his dogs. Above all Jerry loved and cherished his family.
