Thomas Jeremiah Nuckolls Jr., 83, passed away Monday, September 13, 2021, surrounded by his loving family.
Born in Greenville, SC, Jerry was the son of the late Thomas Jeremiah Nuckolls Sr. and Elizabeth Eskew Nuckolls, and attended Clemson University. Jerry’s career included many years at Builder Marts of America, and he served in various capacities including Vice President of Forest Products.
