Reverend Jerry S. Laughter of Terrell, NC departed his earthly journey and entered Heaven on November 26, 2013. He was the oldest of three sons, born to the late Woodrow and Pearline Laughter of Kings Mountain, NC. Reverend Laughter graduated from Kings Mountain High School in 1958, attended Gardener Webb College, and graduated from Southeastern Baptist Theological Seminary. Jerry retired after serving thirty-seven years in the ministry, but remained active in his church. Jerry was known for his loving disposition and giving nature, he never met a stranger. He served the Lord with a strong, steadfast faith which carried him throughout his life, especially during the death of his son, Ken Laughter. We rejoice that he now is reunited with Ken.
