Although I only met Gary once, at my wedding, he was my father-in-law and helped create the wonderful man who I am married to. Thank you, Gary, for the legacy you leave behind in your son. This picture was taken by Gary's granddaughter, Bryn at the wedding.

In the late 90's Gary, Ken Wauligman, Hans Jaeger and I would all go out to lunch on our birthdays, and we would by the lunch for whosever birthday it was. Good times. Gary was a good man. So sorry to hear of his passing.

I am saddened to hear of Gary’s sudden passing. I worked with Gary for over 33 years and it was always a pleasure being around him. I was also fortunate to spend time with Gary outside the office. Whether it was bowling, golfing, or attending a sporting event it was always a great and memorable time! You will be greatly missed! My thoughts and prayers are with the Kremholz family.

I worked with Gary at Gould Pumps since the 1980's. A hard worker with a passion for his profession. I'm sorry he could not enjoy more of his retirement. He was one of the good guys. For his family - those you care for - never really leave you.
Sincerely, Steve Becht

I am saddened to hear of Gary’s passing. My heart goes out to his family. I had the pleasure of working with him on many projects over 30 plus years. I will remember his sense of humor, contagious smile and his dedication to his family. I enjoyed playing golf with him at Tam. I remember his excitement to attend Purdue Football games. Rest in Peace.

I worked with Gary for 20+ years. Often us CSR's would go to purchasing to inquire about some component, part, motor, etc. Not finding the appropriate purchaser to speak to, Gary would always help - even if not his product line! He'd pick up the phone & do what he could do and although bit annoyed when you 1st went to purchasing, by the time you left Gary's office, you had a smile on your face! He is a great guy & will be missed by all. Thoughts & prayers for him & his family at this time!

Gary will be greatly missed by all who worked with him over the years. Gary and I were work friends for over 30 years, although when I first met him I found him exasperating. But Gary mellowed with age and fatherhood. My girls were a few years older than Gary's daughter and we often shared milestones and accomplishments. He was a great guy and I wish I had kept closer contact with him since retirement. Prayers and best wishes to his family.
