Jerry Franklin Bounds
A Visitation will be held from 5:00-8:00 PM Thursday, July 23, 2020 at Hulett-Winstead Funeral Home Sumrall Chapel for Mr. Jerry Franklin Bounds, 74, of Sumrall, MS.
Interment will be in Hayden Creek Cemetery.
Jerry went to be with Lord on July 21, 2020. He was a lifelong resident of Sumrall, MS. He was a devoted husband, father, and businessman. Jerry had a love for the timber business; owning both logging and sawmill companies. Jerry spent many years in the log woods, harvesting trees and running his sawmill. His sawmill is where he loved spending most of his time, if he wasn't with his family.
He loved to make spontaneous road trips to see new places, and completed his goal in 2019, of seeing all 48 lower United States.
Jerry had a huge heart and would give anyone anything he had. He touched more lives than we will ever know and made an impact on every life he touched.
He was preceded in death by his parents, Wash Franklin Bounds and Lizzie Ion Williamson Bounds and a great-grandchild, Thomas Inmon.
Mr. Bounds is survived by his wife of 54 years, JoLane Bounds; children, Perry Bounds (Jeanie), Rhoda Inmon (Billy), Kevin Bounds, and Timothy Bounds (Shana); siblings, Nelson Bounds (Syble), Jerome Bounds (Anita), Alice Brock (Henry), Jearlean Farve (J.T.); grandchildren, Ashley Rainey (John), Blaine Inmon, Zachary Bounds (Amy), Kaylan Inmon, Anthony Bounds, Nathan Bounds, Noah Bounds, Boyd Bounds; great-grandchildren, Aiden Rainey, Thomas Inmon, and Evalynn Inmon.
A private family service will be held later. Due to the Covid-19 pandemic, please wear a mask to the funeral home for the visitation and practice social distancing.
