Gerald F. “Jerry” Donovan, age 81, passed away peacefully on Saturday, March 10, 2018 in New Braunfels, TX. He was born September 22, 1936 in Johnson City, NY to Arthur and Mary Donovan. He was valedictorian of the 1954 class at Binghamton High School and married Anne Cibula on April 15, 1961. Together, they had four sons. Jerry was a computer engineer and project manager for IBM. He spent the majority of his career on the computer and software components of the Apollo/Saturn program and the Space Shuttle program. During this time, Jerry and his family lived in Vestal, NY, Huntsville, AL and Houston (Nassau Bay), TX. After 30 years at IBM, Jerry and Anne joined friends in opening a travel agency and spent 14 years working hard and enjoying the benefits of travel.
