Jerry was born January 29, 1940, in Ashe County, NC; son of the late Dwight and Grace Lovett McGrady. He graduated from Wake Forest University receiving both his Bachelor's and Master's degrees. After a long career in the pharmaceutical industry, the highlights of his retirement were spending time with beloved family, foreign travel with his wife, beach vacations, reading and collecting books, and listening to music. He was an active member of Fellowship Presbyterian Church, and at one time served as a Deacon. He was a longtime supporter of the Demon Deacons and devoted fan of ACC basketball and football.

In addition to his parents, Mr. McGrady was preceded in death by his daughter, Elizabeth McGrady. Those left to cherish his memory are his wife of 25 years, Yvonne Schindler; daughter, Catherine McGrady (Charles E. Matthews) of Rockville, MD; step-sons, Mark DeYoung (Jackie), Jeff DeYoung (Merideth); grandchildren, Carter Matthews, Lillian Matthews, Casey DeYoung, Taylor DeYoung, Veronica Hirschbuhl; brother, Roger McGrady (Katherine), and sister, Carolyn McDowell both of Wilkesboro; along with nephews and nieces.
