Gerald B. Meyer, 92, passed peacefully in the comfort of his home on Sunday. Born on April 13, 1931 to Abraham and Etta Meyer in Yonkers, NY, he had been a resident of Syracuse since 1953 when he graduated from Syracuse University that June; he and Lois were married that same month. They have been married for 70 wonderful years.

Jerry joined his father-in-law Samuel (Jeanette) Abramson in their family business, Standard Office Supply and became President in 1967. Jerry was active in the community, particularly proud to have served as President of The Syracuse Jewish Federation from 1984-1987. The family were long time members of Temple Adath Yeshurun

Graveside services for the immediate family will be in Adath Yeshurun Cemetery.

His family includes his wife Lois, sons Jeffrey (Audrey), and David (Sandy); son-in-law Robert Nash; and Grandchildren Daniel, Rebecca (Michael), Ariel, CJ, Allison, and Eliana; and great grandson Landon. He was pre-deceased by his beloved daughter Laurie, and his sister Naomi Kerwin.

Contributions to perpetuate his memory may be made to Temple Adath Yeshurun, The Foundation of Menorah Park, or The Upstate Foundation for Cancer Research.
