April 15, 1926 — May 24, 2020

Hope Mills

Grady Floyd Jackson, 94, of Hope Mills, passed away Sunday, May 24, 2020 at NC State Veterans Nursing Home in Fayetteville.

Born in Robeson County, he was the son of the late Floyd and Ella Cain Jackson.  Along with his parents, he is preceded in death by his wife, Helen Garner Jackson, son, Ricky Jackson, and grandson, Matthew Jackson.

From 1944 to 1946, he served in the United States Army where he earned the rank of Private First Class.  During his service, he was awarded the Asiatic Pacific Service Medal, Good Conduct Medal, World War II Victory Medal, and Army Occupation Medal.

He retired from the State of North Carolina after 35 years of faithful service as division shop foreman.

Grady and Helen took great pleasure taking road trips with the grandchildren.  They also took care of all family and friends during holidays by cooking ham, collards, and pies for those who wanted them.  No one left their home hungry!

He is survived by his daughter, Hilda Jackson Cash and husband David of Hope Mills; son, Floyd Allen Jackson and wife Barbara of Raleigh; grandchildren, Stephanie Cash Barber and husband Pat of Charlotte, Trish Jackson of Raleigh, Chad Jackson of Evansville, IN, and Michael Cash of Hope Mills; and two great grandchildren, Brooks and Cash Barber, both of Charlotte.
