Gaylord was and will always be my twin brother. Never thought I would not see him again in this lifetime. He was a quite soul, kind, considerate, respectful, loved his family! He was passionate about the things he loved to do and you could hear the excitement in his voice when he engaged in conversations about his hobbies. He was proud of his service in the USN, he loved his job with Quantem Aviaton Services, he loved cycling, his mustang, coin collecting and so much more. A part of me is missing today! Pray you are resting in peace my dear brother, will always love you.
