Gerald Knickerbocker

Binghamton – Jerry Knickerbocker, 78, of Binghamton, NY passed away peacefully on June 6,

2020 after a recent cardiac illness. Jerry was predeceased by his foster parents, James and

Katherine Hurley, in-laws Paul and Helen Kovac, and brother-in-law Greg Kovac. He is survived

by his loving wife of 55 years, Gwen, sons Grant (Cindy) and Gavin (Jennifer) and

granddaughters Rachel, Jill, Kara and Katrina. He is also survived by sister-in-law Donna (Mike)

McQueeney, nephews Matthew (Arie) and Ryan, great nephew Maxwell and foster sister Mary

Ann Crampton and foster brother Danny Igo.

Jerry worked for the City of Binghamton for 41 years and was a dedicated and compassionate

public servant. He was very active in the Knights of Columbus and is a Past Grand Knight for

Binghamton Council 206. He was a parishioner of St. Thomas Aquinas Church. Faith, family and

friends were most important to him. Jerry enjoyed golfing, photography and spending time at

Bradley Brook Lake.

A private funeral service will be held for the family. We hope to have a Celebration of Life

when social restrictions are eased, and we can safely gather.
