He was born on Dec. 22, 1944, to the late George and Violet Gerberich.
Roy was a carpenter for most of his life and to us he was one of the best. He worked for Poff Construction and Snyder Hunt. After age dictated a change, he and two of his best friends operated a gas station in Pulaski. He ended his working career by retiring from Sisson and Ryan Quarries.
One of his favorite pastimes the last few years was working puzzles with his wife and giving them to friends and family. We will always cherish those. His sense of humor will be greatly missed by all who knew him.
He is survived by his wife, Gail Gerberich; daughters Janet Norville (Jeff) and Sandy Light (Bud); a sister, Linda Richards; grandchildren Ashley Cupp (Matt), Angela Nichols (Clinton), Danielle Helm (Jermaine), Cassandra Smith (Jeremy), and Jeison Alvarado; great-grandchildren, Ariel, Landon, Jayla, and Audrey; and lifelong friend Larry Duncan.
A graveside service was held on Friday, Jan. 7, 2022, at 11 a.m. at the Musselman Family Cemetery in Shawsville.
