CTT1 Jeffrey Darryl Nance, USN, Retired, 56, of Mocksville, died Friday, April 7, 2023.

He was born Aug. 8, 1966, in Davie County, to Brenda Cranfill Nance and the late Wade Delbert Nance. Jeff retired from the U.S. Navy after 20 years. Prior to Covid, he had been active at the Davie County Senior Center for five years. One of his favorite activities was being a daily driver delivering Meals on Wheels. The clients he delivered to absolutely loved him and his visits. While waiting for the meals to be ready, Jeff would spend time with the men’s “coffee club” and enjoy talking sports, daily events or whatever else was on their minds. He will be greatly missed by all those lives he had touched.

Survivors include: his wife, Susan Green Nance; his mother; a daughter, Jessica Cline; a sister, Greta “Kaye” Nance Allison (Kenny); stepdaughters, Jana and Katie; niece, Erin; nephews, Thomas and Andrew; and countless unknown friends.

A memorial service will be conducted at 2 p.m., Saturday, May 20, at Lambert Funeral Chapel, with Pastor Kevin Hobson officiating.

In lieu of flowers, please consider memorials, in his name, to Davie County Senior Services Meals on Wheels, 278 Meroney Street, Mocksville, NC 27028.
