Jerry Ray Claypoole

Jerry Ray Claypoole, 73, of Ireland, passed away on Sunday, November 21, 2021 at Stonewall Jackson Memorial Hospital in Weston.

He was born in Braxton County on March 14, 1948, a son of the late Ray and Irene Finegan Claypoole. In addition to his parents, Jerry was preceded by his wife, Linda Colleen Wilmer Claypoole; one grandson, Kieran Ray Claypoole; and one brother, Earl Claypoole.

Forever cherishing their memories of Jerry’s humorous nature are two sons: Jeremy Claypoole of Ireland and Jamie E. Claypoole and wife, Sherri, of Colorado Springs, CO; three grandsons: Jimmy McFarland, Edward Claypoole and Jamie L. Claypoole; one great-granddaughter, Gracie Smith; five brothers: Roger, Dave, Steve, Ronnie, and Jim Claypoole; and two sisters: Charlene Ware and husband, Johnnie, and Sandy Claypoole.

Jerry worked for Asplundh, in the timber industry, and was also a black hat in the mining industry for a number of years. He enjoyed hunting in Wild and Wonderful West Virginia and searching for antique treasures around the state.  In his spare time, Jerry would often be listening to music and playing his guitar.

Family and friends will gather for a graveside service on Saturday, November 27, 2021 in Falls Run Cemetery in Braxton County with Pastor Jeff Ramsey officiating.

We, at Clutter Funeral and Cremation- Alkire Chapel, are honored and privileged to serve the family of Jerry Ray Claypoole. Online condolences may be expressed at www.ClutterFuneralHome.com.
