Gerald Lee Youngman, who was born in Batesville, Indiana to Edna C. (Barnes) and Jacob B. Youngman, passed away on January 2, 2019. He is also preceded in death by brothers, Ben, James, and Daniel Youngman; brothers-in-law, Frank Skodzinsky and Donald Salvino.

Jerry is survived by wife Mary Jo (Holtel) Youngman; daughter, Christine (Youngman) Faghihi (Nabi); siblings, Diane Kirkpatrick (Paul) of Cincinnati, OH, Malcolm Youngman (Virginia) of Batesville, IN, Helen Skodzinsky of Waynesboro, OH, Janis Salvino of Freedom, PA; grandchildren, Christopher, Anthony, Sara, Michael, and Ashley Faghihi; 3 great-grandchildren; and 14 nieces and nephews.

Jerry worked for Hillenbrand Industries in Batesville, IN a short time before enlisting in the Marine Corp where he served from 1957-1964 and is a veteran of the Vietnam War. He started his career with VariTyper a division of Addressograph Multigraph in Cincinnati in 1965. He was transferred to Nashville in 1976 as Branch Manager. He earned many 100 Club Honors, Machine-A-Week, and Q Man Awards during his sales career with VariTyper. He also worked for Emerson Quiet Kool.

Jerry and Mary Jo were married on October 26, 1963 at St. Peters Catholic Church in Brookville, IN. Jerry loved his family very much and had a great sense of humor as evidenced by the gag gifts at Christmas and humorous greeting cards he would create himself. He enjoyed being outdoors doing yard work and gardening. Jerry always said he liked to see things grow. He was also an avid reader and read many religious books. He loved his faith and wanted to learn all he could. Most of all he loved volunteering at St. Ignatius doing whatever was needed from burning palms for Ash Wednesday to locking the church at night.

Even though Jerry spent his last seven years in a nursing home after suffering a stroke in 2012, his attitude was always positive.

Visitation will be held on Saturday, January 12, 2019 from 9:00-11:00 a.m. at St Ignatius Catholic Church with the funeral mass following at 11:00 a.m. Lunch will be served at St. Ignatius immediately following the cemetery service.
