64, William Jerry McCloud, MD 1935-2012 


William Jerry McCloud, M.D., quietly passed away on Monday, April 2, 2012 surrounded by his family who so dearly loved him. His valiant effort to recover from cancer was thwarted by complications he could not overcome. Jerry to all who knew him, and affectionately "Pop" to his young grandsons, was born on December 27, 1935, at his home in Mayfield, Ohio. He spent his high school years living on his family's 160-acre farm where he raised his Berkshire pigs and explored the countryside on his Ford tractor. Jerry graduated from Lanier High School in West Alexandria, Ohio, received his BS from the Ohio State University, and earned his MD from Ohio State Medical School. He did his orthopedic internship at Los Angeles County Hospital and his residence rotations at Ohio State University Hospital. After retiring from surgery, Jerry spent many years working as a medical consultant at the Ohio Bureau of Workers Compensation and the industrial Commission of Ohio. Most recently, Jerry was the chief orthopedic consultant for the Ohio Rehabilitation and Social Security Services where he worked for over eleven years. Jerry was preceded in death by his parents Ruby Jane Lacy McCloud and William Jefferson McCloud, his infant son Joshua David McCloud, and his brother-in-law Albert D. Bellamy, DVM. He is survived by his wife, Judith Sudak McCloud, to whom he was married 44 years; his son and daughter-in-law, Gregory Kyle and Maria McCloud and Joseph Michael and Tara McCloud; his daughter and son-in-law, Andrea Maria McCloud and Derek Gaertner; and his sister, Maxine McCloud Bellamy. He also leaves behind his precious grandsons William Mathias McCloud, Ames McCloud Gaertner, with brother on the way, Oliver Wade McCloud, and Ian Rogers McCloud. Jerry will be remembered doing what he loved: spending time with his family, watching his "beloved Buckeyes," playing golf, and going to the racetrack.
