John William Gerhart

John William Gerhart (Bill or Billy), originally from Glensted, Missouri, passed away in the presence and comfort of his family in San Diego California on July 17, 2016.

Bill Gerhart, son of Mr. and Mrs. Doran Gerhart (deceased), was born in Versailles and grew up on the Gerhart family farm in Glensted. After high school, he enlisted in the Navy, where he ultimately became an Aviation Electronics Technician. He was honorably discharged after serving 4 years of active duty and joined the FAA, and later the Department of Defense. During his 32-year career in San Diego he made significant contributions “on the waterfront” to the operation, overhaul and repair maintenance of Combat Direction Systems on ships of the Navy’s Pacific Fleet. Bill’s retirement on June 1990 was a source of sincere regret by his shipmates as stated in his Letter of Appreciation “…not just for your technical performance but also for your integrity and willingness to stand up for what you considered fair. Your Missouri willingness to ‘stir-the-pot’ will be remembered and missed!” Bill kept active and fit by square dancing, snow skiing, kayaking, and later volleyball. Bill maintained ownership of the family farm in Glensted and was a frequent visitor to Versailles. Bill was always there if anyone needed something fixed or help with a project. He will be remembered for his kindness, loyalty, jokes, and loving manner. And also for his strong opinions on politics, government, and just about everything else! He used to like to say: “Disagreement is good for culture!”

He is survived by his girlfriend, Patricia West, his children, Bill and Tamara, their mother, Diana, his four grandkids (Catherine, Connor, Jessica, and Jolee), his sister June, and his numerous friends. A memorial service is planned at Glensted United Methodist Church October 30 at a to-be-announced time.
