Gerald Joseph Elbert Jr.

Gerald Elbert Jr. passed away peacefully in Marin County on Thursday, December 24, 2015.
 He was born on April 4, 1925, in Marysville, California, where he was raised and attended high school. Gerald was one of three children of Gerald and Helen Elbert. He served proudly in World War II, working in the Adjutant General's office in the Philippines and Japan. After the war, he attended UC Berkeley and Hastings Law School on the GI Bill.
 Gerald married his wife, Rona Webb, in 1952. They spent most of their lives in Tiburon, taking many wonderful trips to England to visit his parents-in-law.
 He started his career as a CPA at Price Waterhouse. He then worked as the accountant, treasurer and VP of the Warner Resort Company. Later, he started a private practice as an attorney in San Francisco, which he continued until the age of 80.
 He was active with St. Hilary Church in Tiburon. He loved to read, especially mysteries, WWII history and philosophy. He also listened to a wide range of music: classical, folk, and every now and then, one of John Philip Sousa's rousing military marches.
He was preceded in death by his wife, Rona, and his sisters Joan and Elizabeth. He is survived by his son, Miles, and his wife Brigitte.
 Gerald spent his last year in the loving care of the staff at Drake Terrace, San Rafael, enjoying frequent visits from his former daughter-in-law, Carol Garnett.
 Donations in his honor may be sent to St. Hilary Church or a charity of your choice.
 Please send condolences to: mileselbert023@gmail.com or Miles and Brigitte Elbert, 45 Heer en Beekstraat, 5242AC, Rosmalen, The Netherlands.
