Here we are G writing an obituary for you. It’s surreal that’s for sure. I think all of us would agree we don’t know anyone who enjoyed life more than you did. your genuine enthusiasm for the simplest of things was heart warming, your laugh was contagious.
You kept dreaming big dreams of what you wanted to see and do right up to the end.
You were also more than satisfied with the simple things in life, packing a lunch and your books and riding your bike out to Mott lake on summer/fall afternoons.
You wanted the sun on your face and your feet in the dirt, Friday night horse races with John, thrift city a couple times a week. Fun with pool and golf, always with some skin in the game.
This last 20 months took a toll on your heart.
You couldn’t talk about Mike not even once without tears flowing down, you thought you should be able to hold yourself together better than that.
You weren’t afraid to leave but you tried so hard to stay, so you wouldn’t devastate Tom, “no way can I do that to him right now”.
We’re all going to miss you so much. We’ve got our stories to tell and our memories that make us smile and laugh and warm our hearts, but for now lots of tears.
You were loved G, you were loved!
Gary’s obituary was written by his loving family.


Let the family know you care by sharing this tribute.

    Going to miss your smile and laugh G. You always had the best ideas and were always there for me even when I never asked you to be, but because you wanted to be. You were the Greatest Grandfather a granddaughter could ask for. Words can not express how grateful I am now that you are at peace with my father (Your Son) I’m proud to be your
    ONLY Anderson Granddaughter xoxo
