Obituary of Julian Peter Gerardy

Please share a memory of Julian to include in a keepsake book for family and friends.

Port Allegany--Julian Peter Gerardy, born December 26, 1932, lived a full and feisty life.  Julian died on March 5, 2021. 

 

Born in Eastman, Wisconsin, he decided early on that farm life was not for him.  At the tender age of 17, he left behind parents, Clara and Jake, and siblings, Leonard, Lloyd, Joe, Glenn, Alnora, and Luella to join the Army.

 

He was a good mechanic and soldier for the Army, but after walking Korean rice paddies never ate a grain of rice again.  He received the Purple Heart, Bronze Star, and other significant medals and was honorably discharged seven years later.

 

As a soldier, he met the love of his life, Mary Louise Borelli.  He married her in 1956.  They had two children, Cindy (Rick) Bosworth and Bob (Kathy) Gerardy.  After the Army, he worked several jobs, but landed at North Penn Gas as a mechanic until retiring in 1993. 

 

Julian was very good with his hands and built a house in Fishing Creek in Roulette where he raised his family.  He enjoyed hunting, trapping, and hosting friends there.  Julian attended various churches including St. Mary’s in Roulette and St. Elizabeth’s in Smethport.  He was also a member of the Moose. 

 

Julian died on March 5, 2021.  In addition to his wife and children, he leaves behind grandchildren Adam and Amanda Bosworth, and Allison, Rachel, and Hannah (Riley) Gerardy.  His family will sorely miss him.
