Gerald “Jer” “Pop” Straub passed away on March 23, 2020, surrounded by his family. He was the loving husband of 56 years to his high school sweetheart Ginny Straub who passed away on April 30th 2018.

He was a proud United States Army Veteran during the Korean War. Jer was a hard working man who was employed by Carpenter Technology for 33 years until he retired. He enjoyed continuing his love for working with his son as a runner for Straub Roofing and fixing projects for his grandchildren.

Jer had a love for his family, animals, casino trips, and ice cream. He enjoyed attending family gatherings and spending time with his beloved cat “Buffy”. He enjoyed traveling to Potter County with his sons to sit and watch the bears.

Gerald is survived by his sons Rory, wife Julie, Randall, wife Bonnie, and Robert “Boozie” Straub, wife Judy and 4 grandchildren Derek, wife, Kelsy, Kristen, husband Zach, Austin, and Taylor.

In lieu of flowers please send donations to the Berks County Animal Rescue League, 58 Kennel Rd., Birdsboro, PA 19508.

Jerry was a member of Bern Church's senior group, Senior Berners. He always had a twinkle in his eye, and was always upbeat & happy. I came to know him as a kind, sweet guy. The Berners will miss him. Rest in peace Gerry. God Bless.

The entire Shupp/Menet house is sending prayers for healing your heavy hearts. Jer will live on in our memories and I am so thankful for the positive impact he had on my life. Truly a great person and he is joining the equally wonderful Gin. God bless their next journey together as they look down on you.
