We are so sorry for the loss of your father, grandfather, and brother. I know he loved you all very much and he was so proud of all of you. He will be missed by many. We have loved Steve for many years, meeting him through our sister Pat Gerle. Whenever together and Steve’s name was mentioned my daughter in law Jen always followed it with “I love Steve.” We all felt that way. He had such a great sense of humor, infectious smile and generous spirit. Even though Steve and Patty divorced, they found their way back to one another. They had great love, and a great friendship. We will be forever grateful for his kindnesses to our sister. If she needed anything, he would just show up. He would take her to doctors appointments, make the trek to Magee Rehab and any other hospital or physical rehab center her needs brought her. He would just appear, and make her smile. When she came home Steve regularly visited bringing her favorite coffee with a straw so she could more easily drink it. He simply and quietly made so many thoughtful gestures. We will be forever grateful and words fail me to tell you how much he meant to all of us. With great affection, The Townsend Family

Hello Jason, Denise and family. I’m so sorry for the loss of your father. Steven was so funny, so kind but oh could he speak his mind…as I’m sure you all know. When Fred took me to NJ the first time to meet the east coast Gerles, Steven and Jimmy made me laugh so hard with their razor-sharp quips I was at ease. He continued to be supportive as time and circumstances changed. He really hated Arizona but came out one last time to say goodbye to his mother. Thank you my friend. Rest In Peace Linda Gerle
Peace of mind is a call away. We’re here when you need us most.

I remember meeting Uncle Steven at my Grandmothers funeral. I remember him being one of the funniest and most entertaining family members there. He will be missed. I wish I knew him better.

Ken Herndon left a message on September 15, 2022:
I grew up with the Gerle brothers and recall thousands of wonderful memories. There wasn't a day that went by without doing activities i.e. baseball, football, hopping cars in snow storms etc. As we transitioned into our teens, one at a time, other topics like cars and girls took over a new type of journey toward adulthood. Steven was a real ladies man when cruising in his lifted 1957 (green ?)Chevy. Our new role model guy...lol In closing, my condolences go out to the Gerle family during this difficult time. God has now called Steven's soul to Heaven for eternal peace.

Jason: I am so saddened to hear of your Dad's passing. He was a gentleman and a gentle man. When my kids were babies and we lived a few doors down, he always stopped to see if the kids needed milk or to inquire "what's on MTV?" He riled the kids up with his playfulness and his thoughtfulness was always appreciated. We lovingly called him "Mr. Goodwrench" because he was always tinkering on some car. He was a truly decent man and will be remembered fondly. Godspeed, Steve...R.I.P. Susan Klotzbach
