Formerly of Eden, NY, died January 18, 2021, at the age of 84. John was an accomplished mechanical engineer who worked at Fisher Price for over 30 years.

He was predeceased by his wife, Marcia (Granger); survived by four children Mark (Karen), Marie Muscatello (Rich), Matt (Sue) and John (Cristina); grandfather to Anne, Nick, Emmett, Ashley, Victor, Teale, Nolan, Seth, Andrew and Emilia, and brother to Gerald, Sister Mary Jane. Born to Charles and Lugarda Benz Gerwitz on July 5, 1936, John was the youngest of 10 children and raised on their family farm in West Valley. He is predeceased by his brothers Richard, Howard, Cyril, Rodger, and Charles and sisters Gertrude Borer and Jane Dunkleman. Many thanks to Orchard Heights, Fox Run of Orchard Park, and Hospice for their care and compassion. A Celebration of Life will be held Summer of 2021.
