Gerald Clark Wobig

Gerald Clark Wobig was a caring husband, father, grandfather, brother and friend. He left this world for his heavenly home on January 2, 2022 at the age of 80.

Gerald was born to Harold and Ellen Wobig in Jamesville, WI, on November 27, 1941. After graduating high school, Gerald began his career as a mechanical engineer at Amerock and continued his longstanding career at Master Lock until his early retirement, then did a short stint as a truck driver for Schneider Trucking until his full retirement.

Gerald found joy in golfing, bowling, crossword puzzles, and evergreen trees. He could frequently be seen strolling for miles around Calera, the beloved city in which he lived. He also attended Calera Baptist Church in Calera, AL.

Gerald loved and cherished his family very much and especially adored his two grandchildren. He will be missed dearly by all who loved him.

    I didn’t know Mr. Wobig very well other than to talk to him when he was out walking. 16th Street and this whole end of Calera will never be quite the same without seeing him walking. My thoughts and prayers are with you Sammie.
