Obituary for Jerry Allsteadt

Joseph “Jerry” Allsteadt, age 87, died peacefully December 27, 2021.

Jerry attended St Mary's of Redford for all of his schooling making numerous life-long friends who continue to gather to this day. He graduated from University of Detroit as a chemist. His first job was at Stroh's Brewery laboratory. It was while working at Stroh's that Jerry met the love of his life, Patricia Colodiy, whom he married in 1962. Following Stroh's Brewery, Jerry went into sales of technical laboratory and industrial equipment at Beckman Instruments followed by Scientific Pittsburgh.

Throughout his adult life, he played in softball leagues in both Michigan and Florida until the age of 80. He was devoted to the Holy Spirit and was a catechist for confirmation candidates at Our Lady of Refuge parish. His greatest joy was his four sons, David, Stephen, Joseph, and Christopher. He was a devoted husband, father, and grandfather. He was deeply loved and will be sorely missed.

He is survived by his beloved wife, Patricia, his children, David (Karen), Stephen (Ellen), and Christopher, his grandchildren, Michael, Emily, and Catherine, and his brother, Patrick. He was preceded in death by his son, Joseph Allsteadt.
