Garry Lowen Gerloff

December 24, 1947 - March 7, 2021

     Garry Lowen Gerloff lost his hard-fought battle with his many strokes on the afternoon of Sunday March 7, 2021.

     Garry was born the second son of George and Leta (Beenken) Gerloff on 24 December 1947 and graduated from Clarksville High School in 1967. Garry worked for some time during and after high school for the Fred Rosenwinkle family on their farm north of Clarksville, Iowa.

     Garry then spent six plus years in the United States Army serving two full tours of duty in Vietnam which he was very proud of.

     After leaving the United States Army, Garry got a Class A driver’s license, and after a year or so of long haul he started driving for The Farmers Cooperative in Farnhamville, Iowa and drove for them for many years. Garry was very proud of the fact that farmers called for him to be the one to come to their farm and no other. As part of this job Garry also had a HazMat endorsement as part of his Class A License and drove many semi-tractor-trailer loads of anhydrous around the state of Iowa.

     Garry leaves his wife Jeanette and his brother Gerald (wife Kum Ok) and several nephews and nieces to morn his passing.

     Garry’s final resting place will be at the Iowa Veterans Cemetery in Adel, Iowa.

     The Iowa Cremation, 16185 Laurel St. Waukee, Iowa (515) 264-3407 is performing the cremation.
