Noel Conrad Gerber

Nov. 27, 1938-July 29, 2013

MIDDLEBURY — Noel Conrad Gerber, 74, went to be with his Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ, Monday at his home in Middlebury, with his daughter by his side. He had been ill and was receiving hospice care.

He was born Nov. 27, 1938 in Sugar Creek, Ohio, to Edward and Marion Gerber. He graduated from Waynedale High School in 1956 and began a long career as an over-the-road truck driver, which he loved.

He lived the first part of his adult life in Ohio. In the 1980s, he moved to Indiana and began work for Cardinal Bus Company in Middlebury. He was well known for his great stories and his ability to drive anywhere in the country without a map or directions. He was generous, a hard worker, had a strong faith, loved ice cream and was exceptionally proud of his antique Chevy truck and 1980s-era Buick Riviera.

Survivors include his daughter, Christine (Mark) Moreno; siblings Elliott (Barb) Gerber of Newark, Ohio, Diane Gerber of South Windsor, Conn., Steve (Grace Marie) Gerber of Sellersville, Pa., Elaine (Shradha) Nand of Elkhart, and John (Suella) Gerber of Goshen; and special friends, Tony and Marla McIntire of Middlebury. He will be dearly missed by all.

Visitation will take place Friday from 4 to 7 p.m. at Miller-Stewart Funeral Home, 1003 S. Main St., Middlebury. There will be one hour of calling prior to the 1 p.m. funeral Saturday at St. Paul’s Lutheran Church, 708 W. Wayne St., Middlebury.

Cremation will take place following the service.

His daughter requests no flowers. In lieu of flowers, send memorial contributions to Center for Hospice Care, 22579 Old U.S. 20 East, Elkhart, IN 46516 or Faith Mission, 801 Benham Ave., Elkhart, IN 46516.

There has been discussion at West Goshen Elementary School to require mandatory student uniforms in the future. How do you feel about the prospect of mandatory student uniforms in a public school environment?

I think it’s an excellent idea that is way overdue
I think it’s a bad idea and would be restrictive for students and parents.
