He is preceded in death by daughter, Cynthia Ann Kiener and parents, Frank J. and Genevieve (Collins) Kiener. Jerry graduated as an Electrical Engineer from the University of Dayton and retired after three decades from Ohio Bell/Ameritech as a Division Manager. He loved solving problems, especially mechanical, and left a household full of useful home-made gadgets designed to facilitate life's little chores. He had a special fondness for children and dogs. Most of all, he was a man of great faith, holding his Roman Catholic creed in his heart. Friends may call at MORELAND FUNERAL HOME, 55 E. Schrock Road, Westerville, OH 43081. Wednesday, December 27th, from 10-11 a.m. with The Liturgy of the Word beginning at 11 a.m.. A luncheon to follow. His family would like to express heartfelt gratitude to every person who cared for Jerry, from doctors and nurses through every other staff member at Mt. Carmel West Trauma Center, where he spent 12 days. Their care was everything a family would hope for from admittance through Palliative Care. The family also specifically requests that in lieu of flowers, any consideration of donation be made to The Upside of Downs, N. E. Ohio Chapter, 6533-B Brecksville Road, Independence, OH 44131.

Dear Mary Pat, So sorry to hear about Jerry! John G forwarded your e-mail. Just a few weeks ago John and I were talking at which time I inquired about you guys. Sometimes it seems like just yesterday that we were all together at OBT and with Lyme out at Oberlin. I remember many laughs with him when we were in the Eastern Division together. He was a really great guy and a very good friend to me!
