Obituary for Jerry Ray Schriner

March 20, 1938 - November 21, 2017
San Antonio, Texas | Age 79

. . . . loved bowling, fishing and taught all his children to fish while taking many trips with friends . . .


Beloved husband, father, grandfather, brother, uncle and friend, Jerry Ray Schriner, age 79, passed away on Tuesday, Nov. 21, 2017, with his loving wife by his side. He proudly served his country in the U.S. Air Force, spent time overseas, and was honorably discharged. After a long professional career, as a radar expert on B-52 airplanes at Kelly Air Force Base, he retired from civil service in 1993. Jerry met his second wife, Elena Calderon, while on a bowling league and they went on to have a beautiful union of 37 years. Jerry loved bowling, fishing and taught all his children to fish while taking many trips with friends and family to the coast. In addition to fishing, Jerry enjoyed playing pinochle with friends, doing crossword puzzles, watching "Jeopardy!" and "Wheel of Fortune," and being a No. 1, true blue Cowboys fan. He loved to sing, taught his kids old songs from his childhood, and sang often to his wife, Elena. Jerry was the kind of man who never met a stranger. He was patient, expressive, loving, kind and laughed easily. He was always ready to share a story over a cup of coffee and a breakfast taco.
Jerry is preceded in death by his parents, Carl and Thelma Schriner; brother, Jim Schriner and sister, Jean Coker. He is survived by his beloved wife of 37 years, Elena Schriner; children: Lisa Ardila, Laurel Moraniec (Alex), Roger Herron (D'Les), Sandra Jean Calderon, and Chris Herron (Jessica); grandchildren: Ryan, Devon, Phillip, Mariel, Corbin, Javier, Carly, Brooke "Pippy", Gabriel, Tristan, and Hunter; and his sister, Joyce Hogan, along with numerous friends and neighbors.
