STACH, Gerald "Jerry"

On Sunday, February 5, 2023, Gerald Adam Stach, age 84, passed away at home, surrounded by his loving and devoted family. Often referred to as "Jerry", he was born on December 23, 1938, to Joseph and Sophie (Kuczaj) Stach, in Chicago, Illinois. Jerry graduated high school with the class of 1957, from Springfield Catholic Central, and later attended Ohio State University.

Jerry began his career in security at International Harvester.

He was an active member of St. Vincent De Paul Catholic Ministries, and a parishioner at St. Elizabeth Ann Seton Catholic Church.
