Gerald Robert Resnick, age 72, of Toledo, passed away Saturday August 24, 2019 at Flower Hospital after a short battle with cancer. He was surrounded by our beautiful little family. We talked to him, kissed him, and prayed for him as he slowly and peacefully slipped the bonds of earth and was welcomed into heaven by Our Lord and Savior. He was born June 24, 1947, in New York City to Sidney and Kay (Wexler) Resnick. Gerald was a retired CPA and served as CFO for various area companies. He enjoyed visiting the Toledo Museum of Art and collecting blown glass. We will miss his gourmet cooking, his love of boating on the lake in Florida, and his dry sense of humor.
He is survived by his wife of 28 years, Dee; children, Stacy Resnick and Jody (Shaun) Resnick; step children, Michelle (Kirk) Witte and Kim (Jason) Gelsone; grandchildren, Jacob, Joshua, Kaden, Robert (Katie), Michael , Emily, Faith, Hayden, Dominic, and sister, Rosalind.
The family will receive friends from 3:00 to 8:00 p.m. Tuesday August 27, 2019 at Wisniewski Funeral Home 2426 N. Reynolds Rd., with a scripture service at 7:00 p.m. Prayers will be said at the funeral home at 9:15 a.m. Wednesday with a Mass of Celebration at 10:00 a.m. at St. Joseph Church, Sylvania.
Burial will follow at Resurrection Cemetery, Toledo.
