Until recent years Gaylord was quite the walker. As a neighbor, I could always count on seeing him during my walk and usually he would share the neighborhood "update."

When visiting Gaylord in later years I always knew what to take him, custard and/or ice cream. Once I asked if he had a favorite, his response was "no he liked it all. "

My sincere condolences to the family. Rest in Peace, Gaylord.
