Jerry Eckart, 73, of Circleville passed away on January 3, 2023. He was born on March 20, 1949 in Cincinnati to Robert and Dorothy (Laycock) Eckart. Jerry never met a stranger and if he liked you enough he may have baked you a cheese cake, or he’d buy a dozen of Lindseys pumpkin donuts. He loved his community and his family especially his grandchildren. He was preceded in death by his parents.
