|Let the memory of Gary be with us forever|
This memorial website was created in memory of our loved one, Gary Michaels, 59, born in 1955 and passed away on June 3, 2015. We will remember him forever.
"The greatest role model of a loving, hard working, kind souled, family man. I am going to miss simply talking with him about the little things going on in our lives. His smile, laughter and jokes instantly invited you in as a friend and family member. I love you old man. I can't wait to go fishing and work on a puzzle with you again."
"You were my home, and home was the best place to be. Thank you for giving me the children to fill that home, thank you for the laughter that was music to my ears, thank you for cherishing me.
My heart is shattered and I will forever miss you by my side."
"I love you and miss you so much, I just cannot find the words to describe it. My mind can't fully wrap around the idea that I can't just call you or see you anymore, because what I really want to do is wrap my arms around you and give you the biggest hug possible. You were an incredible Daddy and an amazing grandpa to my kids, and I ache for the memories they won't make with you. I am so grateful that you never left a conversation or visit without an I love you or a hug. I have no doubt of your love for me, and I know you knew I loved you, but I doubt you knew just how much. Your absence will be felt every minute until we meet again. Happy Father's Day, Daddy."
"Gary was so much more than just a 'father-in-law' but my friend, confidant, and inspiration. His love and devotion to his family was endless and evident to all that knew him. I struggle to imagine a world without him. The greatest honor of my life was asking him for his daughter's hand in marriage (and then watching him blush). The ‘Justin and Lary Brewing Company’ will endure albeit the malt less sweet, the hops overly bitter, and yeast slightly off. To you my friend. You will never be forgotten."
"Gary you were a shining beacon that we all looked forward to seeing at family gatherings. You would lighten our hearts every time, filling the days with laughter and merriment. You will be missed just as much as you will be remembered, forever."
"My cousin, friend and a great inspiration, Gary, you're an incredible guy. Board games were never boring with you in the game, lad! We would swim, fish, laugh and eat. Certainly, the best times of my life. Keep the bait wet, Gary, til we toss a line again. You're the best."
"To our wonderful cousin who made our family brighter and full of laughter! You shall be deeply missed."
"Gary was a man you would love the minute you meet him. He has been my friend since the fifth grade, we spent a lot of great times together over the years. Gary was very much a family man and he cherished his family. Going to miss you you buddy, you were not only my best friend but a brother. Hope you are fishing with your Dad and try not to catch all the trout in heaven before I get there!"
