Obituary for Roy Gerdel Jr.

Roy Gerdel Jr.
Gerdel, Jr., Roy N., passed away Thursday, June 14, 2018, at 83. Beloved husband of Shirley A. Gerdel (nee Gerstner) for 64 years; much loved father of Sandy (Jeff) Gilfillan, Karen (Rick) Schneider, Nick Gerdel, and Beth (Matt) Johnson; role model and beloved grandfather of Liz, Lauren, and Maria Schneider; Katie (Tyler) Lewis, Michael Johnson, and Caroline Johnson; dear brother-in-law, uncle, and friend to many.

Roy married his high school sweetheart Shirley before shipping out to South Korea with the U.S. Army in 1954. He returned home to family life, earned a business degree from Washington University, and later enjoyed a rewarding career with the Xerox Corporation. Together, Roy and Shirley traveled the globe, built a retirement home in Colorado, attended Cardinals games, and championed environmental causes. Nothing mattered more to them than spending time with family and friends.

Services: Funeral at Bopp Chapel, 10610 Manchester Road, Kirkwood, MO, on Monday, June 18, at 11 am. Interment (family only) at Jefferson Barracks National Cemetery. In lieu of flowers, contributions may be made to the American Cancer Society. Visitation Sunday, June 17, 1-4 pm.
