To Linda and Bruce in memory of your loving brother and my dear ole friend Gary, who I affectionately called “Biss”
Our deepest condolences to both of you, family members, and friends.
Gary is a great loss to his family, friends and so many others and there is true heartfelt pain upon his passing. But what we will always remember are the great memories of Gary and his lovable personality throughout the years. The 66 Fury III that made it to Florida to his next era in the Dodge Tradesman in which we drove out west and back. He drove 23 out of 24 hours to our first destination in Colorado. We all knew his love for driving! My brother remembers his great tennis skills but I knew him for his razor-sharp hand eye coordination in table tennis. Countless number of pizzas consumed at the Cloverleaf bar, his intriguing storytelling sometimes told more than once, our golfing weekends and disputes on rules, the Torch Lake visits and generosity to bring the host plenty of special wine and BBQ spices, and of course a couple of lunch hours at the Lambrecht house with your wonderful and kind Mother and her great sense of humor. And countless memories we created over the years.
Gary was dedicated and committed to everything he did and a perfectionist in many ways. I am a lucky person to have known him and shared many good years with him. His memories will be with me forever, we are all lucky to have those! From our ever-loving Fulkerson family.

Goodbye Gar, we had a lot of good times together. I remember cutting lawns together so many years ago. Playing tennis, living in a tent in Florida, going to concerts. Driving around in the Fury and the van. Going to the Michigan reunions. Visits to Torch Lake. You’ll be missed.
Rest in peace my friend.

I am so sorry to hear about Gary's passing. I remember Gary from when he coached Little League baseball with my Dad. He was a very nice guy, and the one thing that I never forgot was the way he liked his pizza. Pepperoni always had to be under the cheese, never on top of the cheese. My thoughts are with his family & friends.

Gary was my coach for my summer league baseball. He was a great coach & a winner. I ran into him later in life at Fergans and we talked & laughed about baseball & life. He will be missed .

Jerry and I always enjoyed hanging with Gary in Gulf Shores on vacation or at Bruce’s. Great conversationalist, funny story teller, and a truly nice guy. He will always be missed.
