On Wednesday, February 17th, Jerry Ellery Millard, our beloved brother, son, uncle, and father of two, passed away at the age of 23.
He was born on May 31st, 1997 in Newport Beach, CA to David and Holly Millard. On June 30th, 2017 he married his best friend Karissa Angeline Perez. They had two children; a daughter and son.
Jerry loved being a father. His proudest moments were the births of both his daughter, Ellery, and new son, Tazwell. He would always have the biggest smile anytime he talked about them. He was truly his happiest when around family and friends. He had a booming spirit and infectious personality. He would oftentimes be seen in Raiders gear, as they were his absolute favorite team. He enjoyed shooting guns and had hoped to get more into hunting in the future.
He was preceded in death by his father David. He is survived by his mother, Holly, his wife, Karissa, his two children, Ellery and Tazwell, his brothers Shane, Ryan, and Joeseph, all of California; his sister Deanna, of Ohio, and his sister Audra, of Oklahoma, as well as several cousins, nieces, and nephews.
A memorial service will be held in his honor on Saturday, February 27th at Central Christian Church on Waldron Rd in Fort Smith, AR at 12 o'clock.
