Obituary for Gerald Lesington Slider, Sr.

Oldtown, MD – Gerald Lesington Slider, Sr., 82, of Oldtown, MD, passed away Saturday, December 22, 2018, at his home with his wife, Bernice and son, Jay, at his side. 

Born March 17, 1936, Mr. Slider was the son of the late Ernest “Shortie” Slider and Mary Margaret (McKenzie) Slider.  He was also preceded in death by his brother in law: Thornton Robinette.   

Jerry was a graduate of Flintstone High School, Class of 1954.  He was a veteran of the United States Air Force where he met Bernice Copeland and the two were married December 30, 1957.  The couple had almost 61 years together. Jerry retired from the County Roads Department.  His favorite thing in the world was spending time at his camp with Bernice and their dog Ruff, sitting around the fire roasting hot dogs.  Nothing made him happier.  Jerry was an avid outdoorsman.  He loved hunting and just being outdoors.  He had had such a great sense of humor and many dear friends.  Jerry will be loved and missed by so many. 

Besides his wife, Bernice, Jerry is survived by his son: Jay and wife, Betty, Oldtown, MD. He is also survived by his sister: Judy Robinette, Oldtown, MD; several nieces and nephews, and also his dear first cousin, Rosemary Smith and husband, Don, Berkeley Springs, WV.
