Gerald Paul Benson
Gerald “Jerry” Benson passed away peacefully at home with his loving wife, Joan, at his side.
Born to Rodney and Mae Benson in Passaic, N.J., Jerry moved to the San Fernando Valley with his family when he was 14 years old. He graduated from Notre Dame H.S. and married his high school sweetheart. After serving in the Armed Forces for two years, Jerry spent more than 35 years as a Shell Service Station owner. He loved fast cars.
Jerry joins his son, Jerry, Jr., in heaven.
He is survived by his loving wife of 58 years, Joan; daughters, Janice (Bill), Julie (Jim) and Jodie (Lon); grandchildren, Christie, Cameron (Tony), Charley (Erica), AJ, Jaclyn, Jeanine (Mike) and Jennelle; great-granddaughter, Frankie; sister, Lorraine; and brother, Fred.
We all loved him and will miss him dearly.
