Condolences

Sorry to see this Nancy. He was still too young to leave you. I didn't know him but he sounds like he was a great fun guy. I can tell he raised you right.

Many memories with Gary and the Williams family. Sending our deepest condolences and many prayers during this time. May God hold you close . We love you all.

My deepest condolences! Gary was my first cousin, the first grandson of my grandparents, Alvin & Freda Wolf, and I am #10 of their 11 grandchildren, so he was 13 years older than me. I mostly remember him from our growing up years but I last saw him 10 years ago when he attended our Wolf Family in 2010. Sad that time & geographic miles distanced us but we loved Gary. Our thoughts and prayers are with his family during this time.

My deepest condolences! Gary was my first cousin. He’s the first grandson of my grandparents, Alvin & Freda Wolf. I am #10 out of their 11 grandchildren so Gary was 13 years older than me. I mostly remember him from our youth when the family would gather at Grandma & Grandpa’s house. Time & geographical miles had distanced us but the last time I saw Gary was in 2010 at the Wolf Family Reunion. We loved Gary! Our thoughts & prayers are with you all at this time.

Gary, my 1st cousin. We didn’t get to see one another very often. My family were missionaries and lived in Guatemala. However when we came to USA in the summer, we most always stayed a few days with Aunt Ethel, Uncle Larry. Gary and Jeff. The boys had a toy tractor that rode like a tricycle and I remember riding that up and down the sidewalks. There was a park nearby their house and I always loved to go to the park with them. And then there was always a ball game going on TV. It was a nice surprise when Gary spent some time with us as my father was nearing death at the Ashland Hospice hospital. I’m going to miss him.

Dear Williams family,was sad to hear of Gary's passing.We went school together at Pleasant Street until we left town for Columbus.Remember the girls in gym class at Edison.We also played softball together at GBC.Sharon&iAre praying for your family
