Evans Funeral Home announces the death of Mr. Jerry Ahern, age 66, of Jefferson, who passed away on Tuesday, July 24, 2012.
Mr. Ahern was born in Chicago, Ill., a son of the late John and Arline Ahern.
Jerry was an award-winning, internationally-known author of over 80 novels including "The Survivalist" series, numerous non-fiction books, and thousands of magazine articles. In recent years, Jerry served as an editorial consultant. Additionally, Jerry was a strong supporter of the United States Constitution and Bill of Rights.
Jerry had a strong Christian faith and led a vigorous and healthy lifestyle until a recent and aggressive cancer took his life. His positive, never-give-up attitude, as well as a good sense of humor, were a part of his day-to-day throughout.
Jerry was deeply cherished and loved by his family; all those that knew him, loved him. He had a strong devotion to his family.
Survivors include his wife of 43 years, Sharon Ahern, of Jefferson; children and their spouses, Samantha and Robert Akers, of Commerce, and Jason and Tracy Ahern, of Buford; grandchildren, Olivia Akers and Alec, Aidan, Emily, and Addison Ahern; and nephew, George R. Smith, of Hartwell.
A private family memorial service will be held on a later date.
