On April 26, 1957, Gary David was born in Rochester, then soon adopted by loving parents Lester William and Margaret Mary Maglecic Gordon. Gary grew up and attended the Rochester Schools and graduated with his class in 1975.

 

As a professional truck driver, Gary enjoyed his road trips and the sights along the way. Most recently he drove for Universal Trucking on dedicated runs for General Motors from Ft. Wayne to Detroit.  He was a member of the Teamsters.  

 

Gary was a member of the Fraternal Order of the Eagles # 852, serving as past President for four terms.

Wayne and the Manitou VFW Post # 1343.

 

An avid collector of vinyl records, Gary was proud of his unique collection.  He enjoyed dining out at the Eagles or Omega on Friday nights for all you can eat Walleye.  An avid reader, he was a frequent visitor to the Library.  Gary looked forward to the annual summer Gordon reunion where he met up with his family.

 

Left to cherish Gary's memory are an Aunt Mary Lou Gordon; cousins, Russell Gordon, Tom Gordon, Jeff Gordon, Bill Gordon, Pat Perry, Robert Warner, David Warner and Dale Cranmer.

 

Preceding Gary in death are his parents, aunts, Josephine Warner, Pauleen Cranmer, Ida Shaffer and Mable Umbaugh; uncles, Arthur Gordon, Carl Gordon and Howard Gordon.
