I had the privilege of working with Gary on engagement teams at Arthur Andersen and later as a client at North Central. I could always count on Gary to candidly contribute his thoughts on our responsibilities and challenges. I truly valued his input and work ethic. He chose a wonderful wife and honored her with all his heart. Our world needs more Gary DeGrange's.

Our Brother Gary was truly a gift to us all !

His unwavering love for his family, often shown by his caring and generous heart, his words of wisdom shared when sought, and his unique sense of humor that always made you smile, will ease our sorrow at least for a while.

Now there's an empty space where he belongs, and even though this feels so wrong, we will honor you, Dear Brother, and continue on. Living each day as you would be, with love for each other, caring and generosity.

In our hearts, you will always remain precious !

Always Remembered, Forever Loved.

Dearest Kathy and The Degrange Family -
Gary loved life, that is for sure. Anytime he walked into a room, he lit it up with his grin. I always enjoyed our visits at our company Christmas Party. He always had a story to share or a joke to tell. He will be misssed...

May God give you peace and fill your heart with wonderful memories. He will always be by your side.
Love - Paula & Leo Kleiweg

Kathy I've been knowing you, and Gary for over 42 years. We were freshmans at Dominican, and Gary at St. Augustine. There were lots of house parties along with high school dances we attended.
You and Gary were blessed to have each other's love for 42 plus years, but if we were in control it would be more.
Gary is not suffering any more, and probably sitting up there with that big smile (I'll never forget) across his face .
Love you Kathy, my prayers are with you and the family.

Kathy, Wendell & family
I worked with Gary at North Central Oil. We later worked in the same building when he worked for Legend. He was always friendly and said hello when we would run into each other. I remember while at North Central, he would talk about his dog, Moby.
Kathy may you find peace and comfort knowing that he is in a better place.

To Kathy & the DeGrange Family,

Words cannot truly express the sorrow I feel at your loss. I knew Gary for 60 years and sat in the same classroom with him for 12 of them. His passing reminds me that we should not take a moment of this journey we call life for granted.

Cherish the memories

Dear,
I will miss your presence, your smile, how you made me laugh, the look that we only knew what it meant, the care you gave our dogs, you quoting lines from movies, cooking your favorites, the future we were planning after the pandemic and most of all, just sitting with you watching TV.
You gave me memories that will last as long as I am capable of remembering.
Love Kathy
