Mr. Jackson was born in Sandersville, Ga., he graduated from Richmond Academy and joined the United States Air Force soon after. After separating from the Air Force, he spent his life as a meatcutter and retired from Armour and Sam’s Club. During his free time, he enjoyed playing golf and watching Georgia football. Mr. Jackson was known to the grandchildren as “Poppy” and left behind a grand legacy. He instilled many life lessons and shared humbling stories from his past, that will never be forgotten. He will be missed by his family and friends and we find comfort knowing we’ll see him again when we get to heaven. The family would like to give a special thanks to Amedisys Home Health Care and Theresa Cantrell for caring for our beloved Poppy. Thomas L. King Funeral Home and Cremation Service is in charge of arrangements.
