Gerald E. “Skeeix” Resch

Gerald E. "Skeeix" Resch, 76, of 9 Orchard Street, Cuba, passed away Sunday March 24, 2013 at home surrounded by family.

Born on March 21, 1937, in Cuba, he was a son of Frank C. and Dolores Easton Resch. On September 13, 1958, he married the former Alice G. Swift who survives.

Gerry graduated from Cuba Central School Class of 1955. He very proudly served our country in the United States Army from 1955-1957 during the Korean Conflict receiving the Good Conduct and National Defense Service Medals.

Mr. Resch spent many years working for his family beverage business. Over the years he had a number of diversified jobs in trucking and sales.

With friends everywhere he went, many grew to rely on his faithfulness and care. He'd do anything for anybody. In his years of retirement he continued helping others and enjoyed daily socializing with his cronies. Gerry was also content just getting in his truck and driving.

A lifetime member of the American Legion and VFW, he served in various capacities, including being Man of the Year of the Cuba American Legion Post 655 in 1996. Gerry was also a member of the Eagles and Italian Clubs in Bradford, PA.

Surviving are his wife, Alice of Cuba; daughter Cindy Sweet of Cuba; son Jeff (Cheryl) Resch of Leroy; his grandchildren Taylor Johnston of Burleson, TX, Katy Johnston of Cuba and Steven Johnston of Cuba; his siblings Patricia (Francis) Sheridan of Massachusetts, Dolores (Fred) Corell of Brockport, Victoria (Paul) Gaeta of Cuba, Roberta "Punky" (Mike) Cannon of Portiville, Karen (Dan) Comes of Cuba, and Timothy (Betsy) Resch of Cuba; many nieces and nephews; a special sister in law Katy Harbeck of Cuba; and special friends John Koubek, Willy Wheaton, and Vince Kaufmann.

Mr. Resch was predeceased by his parents, Frank C. in 1972 and Dolores in 2001; and brothers John in 1993, Francis (Sonny) in 1997, and David, in 1997.

Visitation will be at the Mark F. Rinker Funeral Home & Memorial Service, Inc., 9 Bull Street Cuba on Tuesday, March 26, 2013 from 7-9 P.M. with additional visitation from 10-11 A.M. at Our Lady of Angels Church, 50 South Street, Cuba followed by a Mass of Christian Burial at 11 A.M.
