August 1, 1954 – June 21, 2018
Submitted by Karin Erickson, wife
Gary passed away suddenly on June 21, 2018. He was a very loving man, had the best sense of humor, and always had such a positive outlook on life. He enjoyed spending time with family and friends, especially his grandkids who affectionately called him “Pa.” He was an avid golfer, enjoyed reading, biking, theater, and loved to travel. The picture on the quilt square was taken in Maui, which was our favorite vacation spot.
Gary was very generous and giving, and I am so proud that his gift of life is shared with many others through his organ donation. He will be forever missed.
