Obituary for Ronnie Dale Jackson

On Saturday, April 16, 2022, (LTC) Ronnie Dale Jackson, died of ALS at the age of 76. Dale was born in Russellville, KY on August 21, 1945, to Maurice Edward Jackson of Olmstead, KY and Mary Della Perry of Bethpage, TN.

Dale grew up in Adairville and attended Eastern Kentucky University where he graduated in 1967 with a BS in Business and gained his commission through ROTC as a 2LT in the US Army. After retirement from the service, Dale worked at the Adairville Post Office from 1994-2006.

In 1967, Dale began his 25-year military career as a field artillery officer and Army aviator serving two tours in Vietnam. It was at the Field Artillery course in Lawton, OK that he met and married his wife of 47 years, Christine Holland. They raised two sons, Matthew and Mark. The military took the family twice to Ft.

Belvoir, VA where he retired as a military intelligence officer in 1992.

Obituary for Darren Alex Hern

Darren Alex Hern, 31 years of age passed away on Tuesday, April 12,2022.

Funeral Services were 2pm on Wednesday, April 20, 2022 at Austin & Bell Funeral Home Greenbrier.

Burial followed in Greenbrier Cemetery. The family received friends 10am until hour of service on Wednesday at the funeral home.

Darren was born February 26th, 1991, in West Nyack, New York and was the youngest child of Dimas Hern, Sr. and Belinda Fuller- Hern. The family relocated to the Nashville area in January of 1996, where Darren would spend his youth, teenage years and adulthood. Darren attended Hunter’s Lane High School, where he encountered many life-long friends. Being humbly social was a special gift upon which Darren was bestowed. Those around him were drawn to his infectious and ebullient personality. He had an unassuming and disarming smile that could put anyone at ease. To know Darren is to have laughed with or to have shared a kind word, whether you were, a close friend, family or a stranger. He had a sense of humor that was second to none and he was as compassionate and loving as he was funny. Darren loved to travel and visited many places, including the country of Panama where many of his family and friends resided. He had a love of music, specifically hip hop, rap and R&B. He was passionate about God’s creatures, specifically the stray animals or those without masters. He had dreams of becoming a veterinarian. One of Darren’s most jovial moments was the day his daughter was born. He was overjoyed with love, and they shared a unique bond. Darren professed his love of Christ in his youth, then again in 2017 at Cornerstone Church. He was a resilient figure in the face of adversity: although he met challenges, he would try to push forward and adapt in any situation.

floral squareDarren was a person that we were proud to call, our brother, son, nephew, cousin, father and friend. Darren leaves to cherish in his memory, loving parents; Belinda and Dimas Hern; brothers Dimas Hern, Jr., Dorian Hern: sisters, Dilsa Hern, Dayra Hern, Doris Garibaaldi; children, De’Andrea and Mariah Hern; numerous special friends, a host of aunts, uncles, nieces, nephews, cousins, and other friends.
