Jerry C. Jarrell

August 31, 1946 - August 29, 2018

Bangor Jerry C. Jarrell, 71, passed away at home surrounded by his family August 29, 2018, after a courageous yearlong battle with Non-Hodgkin's lymphoma. He was born August 31, 1946, in Stickney, WV.
The day after his high school graduation, Jerry enlisted in the U.S. Air Force and proudly served for four years, spending time in Goose Bay, Labrador, and the former Dow AFB, where he fell in love with his forever home, Bangor. Shortly after his military service, Jerry was given an opportunity to start a career in banking, which spanned nearly 50 years in Bangor. He worked tirelessly to help the common man and made a huge impact on small business statewide. He was recognized by the State Legislature for his accomplishments with the SBA.
Jerry's passion for helping people was instrumental in the formation of the well known St. Joseph Hospital annual golf fundraiser. In the 1990s, he established the start up of St. Mary's Daycare, which is ongoing today and has been a model for daycare providers everywhere. He loved to hunt, golf, play pool, and was an avid New England sports fan.
He is survived by his wife of 40 years, Tricia; son, Ryan and partner, Katy Constant; son, Matthew and his proud four legged granddog, Duke; sister, Linda Sepser-Marco and husband, Joe, of OH; sister-in-law, Sister Judith McNamara, RSM, of Portland; brother-in-law, James McNamara and wife, Linda, of Brewer; sister-in-law, Sheila Bourbon and husband, Robert, of FL; many nieces, nephews and close friends; last but not least, his beloved golden retrievers, Halle and Bella.
The family would like to thank the Lafayette Cancer Center, in particular Dr. Cruz, and the nursing staff for their unwavering support and exceptional care over the past year.
In lieu of flowers, memorial donations may be made to St. Mary's Daycare Center, St. Jude Hospital, or a charity of your choice.
