Good ole Jerry Reed, I saw him ona a fishing show once where he caught a 9 pounder and put it in the livewell, his guide, Bill Dance I think, may not be right about the guide, but he took the fish outta the livewell behind Jerry's back and let it go, told Jerry " you'll catch a bigger one. When Jerry looked back into that livewell and didn't see that bass, he knew what had happened. He got madder a wet hen and stood up fixing to whip ole Bill, Bill jumped outta the boat and started running off with Jerry Reed in hot pursuit. They were in a pond and the part where they were was shallow. End of Film.

God bless his family and friends during these hard times. Just remember he is in a better place and is no longer in pain.

Good singer and a good actor, just an all around good person. Jerry we will miss you.
