Jerry Lee Baum

It is with heavy hearts that we announce the passing of Jerry Lee Baum, aged 66, of York Haven. He peacefully departed this life on Sunday, March 24, 2024, at Penn State Holy Spirit Hospital in Camp Hill, surrounded by his loving family.

Jerry served his country as a Navy Veteran during the Vietnam War Era aboard the USS Hawkins Destroyer. Following his honorable service, he dedicated almost forty years of his life to the DLA Distribution Susquehanna, PA, with his final role being a Wastewater Treatment Plant Operator, retiring in 2016.


A man of the water, Jerry found solace and joy aboard his 26-foot Cabin Cruiser, aptly named "Cabin Fever," where he shared countless memories with his beloved wife Cherry on Lake Raystown. He had a passion for country music, the great outdoors, grilling on the back deck, and most of all, spending cherished moments with his family and friends. His devotion to Cherry was unwavering, and their thirty years together were filled with love and happiness.


Born on September 1, 1957, in Columbus, OH, Jerry was the son of Marlin Baum and the late Phyllis J. (Jenkins) Baum. He is survived by his loving wife Cherry S. (Robison) Baum; daughters, Nicky Baum of Bardstown, KY, Brandi Kelso of Schellsburg, and Heather Ayscue of Mohnton; a sister, Phyllis Myers of Carlisle; fourteen grandchildren, and four great-grandchildren.


A celebration of Jerry's life is currently being arranged, and details will be shared as they become available. In lieu of flowers, friends are invited to send cards or make memorial contributions to the American Cancer Society at https://www.cancer.org/.


Jerry will be dearly missed but forever remembered for his kind heart, unwavering spirit, and the profound impact he made on those fortunate enough to know him.
