Francis J. Gerrity

February 7, 1935 - September 11, 2018
Born in Sranton, PA
Resided in Cupertino, California


Francis (“Frank”) Gerrity passed peacefully, while surrounded by family, on Sept. 11. He was preceded in death by his wife of 62 years, Elizabeth (“Betty”).

Born and raised in Scranton, PA, Frank graduated from Johnson Technical Institute and met Betty, the love of his life, on a blind date. After marrying, they moved to Sunnyvale where Frank took a job at HP. After 40 years in various roles at HP, Frank retired to spend time with his family and to volunteer with Agnews Development Center and the Sunnyvale Community Services Food Bank. Frank’s love of sports was legendary and meeting Willie Mays in person was a highlight of a life well lived.

Frank is survived by his four children (Frank, Joyce, Mary, Cathy), six grandchildren, his sister and brother, and many nieces and nephews.
The family would like to thank the staff and residents of Chateau Cupertino for providing care, comfort, and friendship during his later years.

A Funeral Mass will be held at 11:00am on Friday Sept. 14 at Church of the Resurrection, 725 Cascade Dr (Hollenbeck and Cascade), Sunnyvale, followed by burial at Santa Clara Mission Cemetery.
