Gerald Douglas Stroud

Gerald Douglas Stroud, 67, of Marion, North Carolina, passed away Friday, December 2, 2022.

 

He was born in Michigan on November 21, 1955 to the late Paul Banner Stroud and Shelby Jean Harrison Stroud. He is also preceded in death by his wife, Sharon Stroud.

 

Gerald worked for his family’s sheet metal business for many years and could do anything with metal. He was a talented artist who loved drawing and painting, and he was also an avid fan of NASCAR and drag racing. Gerald was a very selfless man who always put others before himself. Although he was a member of Carson’s Chapel United Methodist Church, Gerald recently rededicated his life to the Lord and was baptized.

 

He is survived by two brothers, Steve Stroud and Kenneth Stroud; two stepchildren, Dionna Matthews (Marshall) and Dean Rymer, II; and special friends and caretakers, Jose and Marta Rivas and Julia Anne Hensley. 

 

A funeral service will be held on Thursday, December 8, 2022 at 11:00 a.m. in the Chapel of Beam Funeral Service. Burial will follow at McDowell Memorial Park. The family will receive friends from 10:00 until 11:00 a.m.
