Dear Carol and family,
Thinking of you all at this sad time. You’ll be in my heart and prayers. God Bless. 🙏🙏🤗🤗
So sorry to hear of Gary's passing. We were neighbors who basically just knew each other by the love of our "furry friends" It was such a blessing to chat in the morning as we passed each other. May God Bless you and your family during this difficult time
Carol, you have my deepest symapathy. You and your family are in my prayers.
Carol, Shannon, Matt (Rachel & Addy). I am so very sorry for your loss of an Amazing man. Even though I have not heard it for a while, I loved his quick witted come backs when we were all joking around. Words cannot express...so I will not even try. We are here for you if you need anything. Love Kristen, Scott, Cam and Liam
I worked with Gary for many years in Ground Coat and he was a good friend. He will surely be missed.
Gary will be sadly missed. I enjoyed our group for breakfast every month, and every December with our wives before Xmas. Karen and I want Carol to know how much his personality was appreciated. I did work with Gary at Kohler Co, in the enamel operations, God Bless his family. Blair and Karen Semke
I am so sorry for your loss and praying for healing during this time of sadness. I don’t know your family well, but I knew Gary from daily dog walks. He was always a pleasure to talk with and had such love for his dog and took such wonderful care of him, walking him daily and always having on bright colored clothing to be safe while walking with traffic. We always talked briefly while our dogs passed on walks and he was always kind, considerate, polite and a pleasure to talk to.
May the promise of the resurrection and the confidence of heavenly Eternal Life be with you all.
We are so sorry for your loss. Keeping you and your family in our prayers during this difficult time.
Shannon, Carol, Matt & entire Stahl family,
My sincere sympathy on the passing of your dad, husband, grandfather and brother. He will be greatly missed by all of you. Concentrate on all your wonderful memories with him. May Gary Rest In Peace.
Love & Prayers, Bonnie Schoemer
My deepest sympathy. It was a pleasure working with Gary all the years at Kohler. He was a good guy. May he Rest In Peace and may you, his family, find comfort.
