Johann Christian Gerken's funeral was held on May 23, 1904, at Trinity Lutheran Church, Port Arthur, Texas. He died of heart disease. He was survived by his wife, Anna, who died a month later; his mother, Margaret (Hesse) Gerken, who died in 1906; three brothers: Henry, Herman, and Fred Gerken; four sons: Henry, William, August, and Carl Gerken; and two daughters: Mary and Johanna Gerken.

In 1980 Greenlawn Cemetery confirmed that Mr. C. Gerken (Christian), Mrs. C. Gerken (Anna), and M. Gerken (Martin) are buried there, but no tombstones were found in the location where the cemetery records indicate that they are buried.
