As a neighbor and the first family in our neighborhood Gardner was a very special person . He was always there to help from cutting down trees- cutting the grass - plowing snow- or just a nice social visit. He will certainly be missed. My heartfelt sympathy goes out to Sue and Jessica and the rest of the family. Hold on to and cherish those memories he leaves behind

Our thoughts are with you and your family.

Each and every time Gardner’s name is mentioned in conversation, someone in the group will say “what a great guy.”

As he is and will always be remembered.

We love you all.
