Gerald Robert Stanger

Gerald Robert Stanger, 79, passed away on April 13, 2022, at Grant Hospital in Columbus Ohio after a short illness.

A usually soft-spoken man with a smile and laugh that endeared him to those who knew him. Gerald was born October 7th, 1942 in Perrysville Ohio to Joseph and Bernice (Hall) Stanger. He was a 1960 graduate of Loudonville High School. He was a member of the FFA and a lifelong farmer.

In 1966 he married his sweetheart Ruth (Strausbaugh) Stanger, who he lovingly referred to as Mother Nature. Together they worked the family farm and tended a garden that they generously shared.

He was a National Guard member for 6 years and worked at the Flxible Company. He worked at the General Motors, Ontario plant for 36 years before retiring.

He is survived by his wife, Ruth; their 4 children; Jackie (Bill) Reed, Jim (Tonya) Stanger, Chris Stanger, Cindy (Brad) Rall; 8 grandchildren; Tim, Tiffany, Nick, Ashley, Emily, Abby, Nate, and Anna; 2 great-grandsons; brother Gene (Bonnie) Stanger; several brothers and sisters-in-law; and many nieces, nephews, and cousins.
