Jaron Wesley Gilly, 43, passed from this life peacefully at his home on Monday, December 23, 2019, in Kerrville, Texas.
Jaron was born January 25, 1976 in Alpine, Texas, youngest son of father James W. Gilly, Jr. (deceased) and mother Joy Lavonne Morales. He spent his early years in the West Texas towns of Marfa and Midland before relocating to Kerrville in 2005.
Jaron was a kind, loving, and generous man totally committed to his family and friends and several pets. He enjoyed an interest in cars, playing guitars, listening to music, and watching movies. He practiced his faith in God by studying his Bible. He earned a certificate to serve as a Certified Nursing Assistant. During his working years, he worked at various food establishments, most recently in support of the Junction House Outreach Program.
Jaron's friendliness and kindness to all people and his devotion to and love for his family and friends is a tribute to the gentleness of his heart and soul. His soft-spoken manner and presence will be deeply missed by all who had the privilege to have known him. Clearly the world will not be so bright without him.
