Gerald "Jerry" Lee Stankorb

Gerald "Jerry" Lee Stankorb, age 79, passed away peacefully in his San Antonio, Texas home on May 18th 2020. Born in Cincinnati, Ohio to Russell and Elizabeth Stankorb. During his marriage to Carol Brownstein Stankorb he had three children J. Michael Stankorb, who preceded him in death and his surviving daughters Elizabeth Bruns (Lieutenant Colonel Jay Bruns, U.S. Army), and Major Susan Stankorb, U.S. Army. Jerry was loved by his grandchildren Carly Stankorb, who preceded him in death, and his surviving grandchildren Keegan McGregor, John McGregor, Robert Bruns, and Caroline Bruns. Due to health and safety concerns from COVID-19, a Celebration of Life will be held at a later date. In lieu of flowers the family welcomes donations to the Lady Bird Johnson Wildflower center to honor his memory.

Gerry was a very empathetic man. I was always glad to see him and especially enjoyed his sense of humor.

Jerry had integrity and honesty and saw the amusing, human side of our quirks. He could hold up a mirror in kindness instead of judgment and make observations that made you sympathetic rather than critical. He brought warmth where it was really needed. He told the truth in a way that made you grateful, eventually anyway. We lost an authentic friend and colleague.

I worked for 20+ years with Jerry in Denver. I got in his car pool when I arrived from Louisiana so he could drive for me in the snow. We shared many good times that I remember fondly! RIP dear friend!

I worked with Jerry for many years when we both worked in Child Nutrition Programs. He was a good man who cared about the children and the Programs he served so well. This is a loss to his family and the Nation. May his family find comfort in his service to us all.

Having traveled a lot with your dad and granddad through work and leisure times, we enjoyed lots of fun times looking at old Victorian homes in Montana, going through Canada, Vermont and Germany, and going to good German restaurants. We always found something fun to do when we werent working. I was hired at USDA by your dad and our son Paul was in school with you, Elizabeth, so we had a lot of things we talked about. Weve not seen your dad recently but looked forward to receiving his Christmas letter. He will be missed.
