Gerald L. "Gerry" Krupp; On Wednesday, May 12, 2021; beloved husband of Felice Oberman Krupp for 59 years; loving father of Heidi Krupp (Darren) Lisiten; devoted Papa of Caden Lisiten; brother of the late Alan and Jay Krupp; also survived by nieces, nephews, cousins and many friends. Gerry was a man of few words who was the ultimate gentleman. He was a co-owner with his brothers of the Squirrel Hill deli Royal Kosher Products for many years. He was also employed by Yellow Cab Company for 40 years. He was a classical music lover, a Master Mason and a proud Korean War Veteran who was seldom seen without his Korea Veteran ball cap. Gerry was often described as the kindest man you'd ever meet. His quiet, gentle manner belied the ferocious courage, strength, and bravery he exuded in combat in Korean, and how he loved and supported his family, the greatest love of his life. Friends may meet at Ralph Schugar Chapel, Inc., 5509 Centre Avenue, Shadyside on Sunday at 11:00 AM and then proceed to Beth Shalom Cemetery for 12:00 Noon graveside services. In loving memory of Gerry, contributions may be made to the Wounded Warrior Project, 600 River Avenue, Suite 400, Pittsburgh, PA 15212. www.schugar.com
We would like to send our sincere condolences to the Family of Gerard Krupp. Jerry was always a Mensche, and surely will be missed by His better half, Felice.
