Rita Camp Loses Brother in Tragic Hit and Run Accident

Boone Farm customer Rita Camp lost her brother Jerry Randall Wycoff early Thursday, March 4, 2004. He was killed while jogging as the result of a hit and run accident.

Wycoff was a native of Anniston, Ala., but moved to North Carolina to be closer to his mother, Frances, who he had lived with since 1997.

He was a professor at Rowan-Cabarrus Community College in Concord, N.C., and also taught part time at the University of North Carolina in Charlotte. He enjoyed attending the shows to watch Rita drive Heartland Hightime and Rita’s daughter Lauren show A Promise Keeper.

He said Wycoff is survived by his mother Francis Wycoff, sister and brother-in-law Rita and Larry Camp and several nieces, including Lauren Camp, a nephew and special friend Sherry Newquist Gray of Chicago, Ill. He was preceded in death by his father and a sister Sandy, who passed away two years ago.

Funeral services were held Saturday, March 6, 2004, in Concord.

Police investigators have developed some leads on the suspect, but are still seeking the person whose car killed Wycoff. Anyone with information on this crime can call Crimestoppers at 704-932-7463 or call Sgt. Tim Hartsell and Officer Larry Hubbard at 704-920-5000 or 704-920-5029.
