Jerry Greer — the 19-year-old son of Craig Morgan — will be laid to rest this weekend.
A visitation is planned on Friday and the funeral will take place Saturday morning in Nashville. He died on Sunday (July 10) when he went underwater in a tubing accident and did not resurface.
Country fans hoping to help the family are asked to make donations to the Jerry Greer Memorial Scholarship “to honor Jerry’s energy, athleticism, and love of life,” the Tennessean reports. Funds will assist future Dickson High school athletes — particularly those with dyslexia. Donations should be sent to: Tri-Star Bank 719 East College St., Dickson, Tenn., 37055.
An investigation of the accident which killed Greer is ongoing. Officials are unsure why the life jacket he was wearing did not allow him to resurface after he fell off of his tube, which was being pulled behind a boat on Kentucky Lake. Greer was set to play football at Marshall University this fall.
