Obituary


William F. Gerold was born October 21, 1952; died Wednesday December 4, 2019.
He is survived by his mother and father (Roberta and William); sisters Roberta (Martin Locasio) and Kathleen (Brian, 8.6.2019). He is joining his brother (Kenneth).
Bill spent 45 short years married to the love of his life, Karen. They met July 9th, 1971 and married May 25th, 1974. They have two daughters Kristine Anne (c. Caleb, Aidan, Corbin) and Johanna (h. Daniel, c. Dalton and Jacob).
He lived life to the fullest - wood working, working on his computers and spending time with his family. He loved them more than anything else, and told them daily. He loved building with his grandchildren, going to church and boating with Caleb, going to Aidan’s martial arts and Boy Scouts with Corbin. He enjoyed teaching Dalton how to fish and letting Jacob pull on his face.
The loss is great, he touched everyone he met and he will be missed by all.

In lieu of flowers donations can be sent to American Legion Post 1152; St. James & Autism Speaks would be greatly appreciated in Billy’s memory
