Obituary

Joseph (Joe) Gerber passed away peacefully surrounded by family on March 18, 2019. He was 85 years old. He was born in Tulia, Texas on February 14, 1934 to Matt and Bernice Gerber.

Joe was loved by multitudes of people because he helped and loved multitudes of people. The individuals he helped turned around and touched someone else in a positive way. He was a wholesome force of goodness.

Joe was a member of that "great generation" who served his country, honored the "right thing to do in every situation", and gave 100% effort in all that he did. He was part of the generation who loved his family, didn't give up his responsibilities, put others before himself, did what he said he was going to do, showed up on time, had no excuses, loved big and enjoyed life. If you were ever around Joe, you can still hear in your mind's memory the life filled laugh that he played for all to hear.

Joe was in the essence of the phrase "soul mate" to Virginia, his loving and caring wife. There was no separation between them, they were one. He was an inspiration and dearly loved by his four children.

He is survived by his loving wife of 66 years, Virginia, his daughters: Jeanine and husband, John; Patricia and husband, Phillip; Jackie and husband, Bill; his son John and wife, Robin. He is proud of his wonderful grandchildren Lindsey, Megan, Paige, Nicole, Jason and Erin and honored to have four great grandchildren Letty, June, Waylon and Ava. Also survived by sisters: Marianne, Gloria, Rosemary, Helen, Dolores, Margaret and Barbara.

The family wishes to thank the staffs of St. Ignatius Church, Weed-Corley-Fish Funeral Home, Heavenly Home Health Center, Seton Hospital ICU Team, Austin Paramedics and the many doctors who came to his aide.
