    My Unkie Dunkie!

    The funniest uncle ever! We laughed until we cried. We traveled with Auntie & Unkie Dunkie over many years! My cousins and my children grew up together! Such fond memories I hold dear. I will miss him and hope his family knows how special he was!
    Rest now … you’re with your Big Sister. ( Jackie & Jerry ) your Big Brother! ❤️🌹❤️

    I always enjoyed Gary’s smile and his willingness to help when he and Cheryl were my neighbors. The last time I visited him in Flint he still had his smile.
    Love and condolences to Cheryl and the family.
