Gerald S. Nesbitt, 75, of Mountain View, Arkansas passed away Tuesday, June 29, 2021 in Little Rock, Arkansas. Gerald was born April 1, 1946 in Shakpoee, Minnesota to Stanley and Irene Nesbitt. He was raised on the family dairy farm in Eden Prairie, MN. Gerald went on to serve honorably in the U.S. Army 173rd Airborne Brigade. He is a veteran of the Vietnam War where he earned the Bronze Star Medal with the 'V' device for heroism, and the Purple Heart Medal.

"Swoop's" experience in the Army played a very important role in his life. He frequently pointed out that the Army taught him the value of discipline, teamwork, and investing in a cause larger than himself. He would explain to loved ones how these values contributed to his success as an NRA certified Advanced Firearm Instructor and devoted father. 

In remembrance of a loving father, grandfather, brother, uncle, and man of God.

Mr. Nesbitt is survived by daughters, Syriniti D. Nesbitt and Michelle A. Harrison, brother, Scott Nesbitt and sister, Patricia MacFarlane, grandchildren, Astrid Nesbitt and Jaxon R. Jett, nieces, nephews, a loving community of friends and family he adored.

A graveside service was held for Gerald at Arkansas State Veterans Cemetery, 1501 West Maryland Avenue, North Little Rock, Arkansas.

Gerry will be greatly missed

I've known Gerry since he moved to Mountain View. We attended church together. Gerry was a believer. I have known him to be forthright and honest concerning others as well as himself. Gerry was proud of his service to his country. He moved closer to God as a result of his time in the military. He died a Christian first and foremost. He tried to live his life as best as he could and carried out his earthly responsibilities as he felt he was obligated to do. He was a good man. I am proud to have known him. He left many friends behind. He was proud of his girls and desperately wanted the best for them. I will miss him.
