Jacky Surratt (10-24-21) service 10-30-21

Jacky Lee Surratt departed this life on Sunday, Oct. 24, at the age of 74 years, 3 months and 14 days. He went peacefully in his sleep surrounded by his family on a beautiful fall afternoon.
He was preceded in death by his parents, Aubrey H. and Audrey D. Nichols Surratt; two sisters, Johnnie Sue Lohman and husband Terry, Peggy Duncan and husband Jack; two brothers, Tommie Jean Surratt and wife Bea, Ray Surratt and wife Mary Ella.
He is survived by his wife, Bonnie Ann Pickens Surratt of Adamsville; son, Nicholas Lee Surratt of Adamsville; sister, Barbara Gail Maness and husband, Joe Dan of Selmer; and a host of extended family and friends.
He was a husband, father, brother and uncle. Prior to his retirement, he was the owner and operator of Adamsville Laundry Cleaners for over 30 years. He always took great pride in his work and spoke often of how privileged he felt to provide that service to his community.
Jack was an avid golfer and a lifelong fan of the Tennessee Volunteers. One of the great joys of his life was providing his son the opportunity to attend the University of Tennessee at Knoxville.
He was born and raised in the community of Hickory Flatt where he continued to reside. His favorite place was his back yard and he had many good days there. He enjoyed drinking coffee on the patio in his favorite chair with the warm sun on his face.
“His last weekend was full of fellowship, good barbeque, and a Tennessee game. He went with a full heart and a smile on his face, and I don’t think he would have wanted it any other way.” –Nick Surratt
Memorial services were held on Saturday, Oct. 30, at 1 p.m., at Shackelford Funeral Directors of Adamsville with Phil Mitchell officiating.
