Gerald W. “Jerry” Pinnicks, 87

Gerald W. “Jerry” Pinnicks, 87, of Wooster and formerly of Fredericksburg and Apple Creek, passed away on Monday, December 25, 2023 at Danbury Senior Living in Wooster.

He was born near Fredericksburg on January 12, 1936 to the late Ezra and Mary Lucy (Gilmore) Pinnicks and married Edith Welty on August 21, 1965 and she survives.
He retired from Rexroth in Wooster in 1998 and was a longtime member of the Fredericksburg Church of Christ.  Gerald was naturally musical. He played piano, harmonica, guitar, and accordian, all by ear.  He ministered through music, even playing piano for the residents of Danbury. He was part of a quartet and a church elder for over 50 years.  Gerald was also an avid birdwatcher who enjoyed feeding the birds outside his window.  He was a jack of all trades and could fix just about anything.
In addition to his wife, Edith, he is survived by daughters, Carla (Roger) Stark and Jolene (Karl) Schlabach; grandchildren, Brooklyn, Jayden and Joseph.
In addition to his parents, he was preceded in death by sisters, Dorothy and Eileen; and brothers, Ezra and John.
A service to celebrate his life will be held on Saturday, December 30, 2023 at 4:00 pm at the Fredericksburg Church of Christ.  The family will receive friends following the service. Graveside services will be held prior at 3:00 pm in the Fredericksburg East Cemetery.  Spidell Funeral Home in Mount Eaton is handling the arrangements.
