Gerber, Jay

Jay Thomas Gerber
June 5, 1943 — April 20, 2013
Davis lost a favorite citizen with the passing on April 20, 2013 of Jay Thomas Gerber. Jay was known for bringing his infectious smile and can-do attitude to everything in which he was involved. Whether it was coaching Little League, being president of Davis Rotary clubs and the Davis Chamber of Commerce, serving on numerous city commissions and the Yolo County Planning Commission, heading up work parties at Davis Community Church or helping establish the University Retirement Community Foundation, Jay brought an enthusiasm which made others want to join in the activity.

Jay was born on June 5, 1943 in Evanston, Ill., to John Jay Gerber and Gladys Eittreim Gerber. He graduated from Naperville High School in 1961 and in quick succession graduated from Pomona College and Harvard Business School, then joined the Peace Corps and Marine Corps.

After working in finance at Scripps College in Claremont and at UC Davis, he became the proud owner of Cable Car Wash, the business he owned and loved for 30 years.

He enjoyed music and sang bass in the Davis Junction, a local barbershop quartet, for many years. More recently he sang in the DCC choir and could usually be found pounding out the opening songs at Davis Sunrise Rotary Club meetings.

He is survived by his wife Cynthia Stork Gerber, his daughter Elizabeth Gerber, her husband David Bailey and granddaughter Margaret Louise Bailey, his son, John Bryant (J.B.) Gerber, his sister Julie Woodward and her family and his brother, Steve Gerber and his family, and brother-in-law Bill Stork and his family.

A celebration of his life will be held at Davis Community Church at 2 p.m. on May 8. In lieu of flowers donations may be made to Yolo Hospice, Rotary International, Davis Community Church or a charity of one’s choice.
