Age 56 of Nashville, TN, Jerry Gardner passed away unexpectedly on August 13, 2007. Born October 28, 1950, he is preceded in death by his father, Lyle Jack Gardner and is survived by his beloved wife of 34 years, Pamela Moore Gardner; sons, Matthew Ray Gardner and Grant Michael Gardner; mother, Ruth McConnell; sister and brother-in-law, Terry and John Gamble of Des Moines, IA; mother-in-law, Marian Moore of Gainesville, GA; and many other family members and admiring friends. Jerry was born and raised in Big Stone Gap, VA. He was a loving father, devoted husband, and respected friend and businessman. He was a Deacon of the First Presbyterian Church, where he and his family have been members for almost 24 years. He served on the board of directors, and building and grounds committees of University School of Nashville and the Renewal House. Jerry was President and Chief Executive Officer of Andover Capital Group, a Nashville-based real estate development company, construction company and manufacturer of construction materials, currently building in Texas and the Mississippi Gulf Coast.

Memorial contributions may be made to First Presbyterian Church Building Fund, 4815 Franklin Road, Nashville, 37220; or to Renewal House, P.O. Box 280356, Nashville, 37228.

Jerry was a wonderful friend to all of us during his Xerox days and after, when he was in the development business with NTS and STM here in Louisville before moving to Nashville.  He was very successful in everything he did personally and in business.  He will be missed!

John Falvey summed it up very nicely: Jerry and I stayed in contact after the Xerox days, he became very successful in a couple of business ventures in Nashville. Jerry had many friends and was very involved in the community and his church. His death was very unexpected which made his funeral service a very moving experience. As an example of how well Jerry was respected and the people he touched in his life, the famous Vince Gill sang at Jerry's funeral service.
