Jerome "Jerry" Nolan Sapp

September 17, 1939 ~ October 28, 2020 (age 81)


   Mr. Jerry Sapp of Finley, son of the late Herbert L. and Naomi (Benningfield) Sapp, was surrounded by his family when he passed peacefully from this life on Wednesday, October 28, 2020 at his home. Born on September 17, 1939, he was 81 years, 1 month, and 11 days of age. He had made a profession of faith in Christ and was a member of Our Lady of the Hills Catholic Church. Mr. Sapp was a rural letter carrier and served the people and businesses of Taylor and Marion Counties over 45 years. As an avid outdoorsman, he loved to hunt (especially squirrels), and was passionate about leaving nature better than he found it. The solidity of his genuine heart and honest spirit is evidenced in those he leaves behind.

He leaves to carry his legacy:

   His wife: Laverne (Mills) Sapp of Finley,

   Four children: Nolan Sapp and wife June of Florida, Mickey Sapp and wife Michelle of Campbellsville, Mark Sapp and wife Misti of Campbellsville, and Dr. Felicia Sapp and husband Barry Beach of California,

   Two siblings: Freddy Sapp and wife Margaret of London, and Sondra Vick and husband Scott of Marion County, 

   Ten grandchildren: Darrell, Christopher, Daley, Mason, Alexandra, Brittany, Kristi, Shelbi, Shayli, and Jackson,

   Five great-grandchildren,

   And a host of other family and friends.

   He was also preceded in death by a daughter: Mary Joanna Sapp; and nine siblings: Aileen, Glendale, Keith, Donald, Francis, Phillip, Nancy, Roger, and Junior.

   There will be a private funeral service to honor the life of Mr. Sapp on Monday, November 2, 2020 with interment to follow in the Our Lady of the Hills Catholic Church Cemetery.
