Gary Lee Gazimek

Birth: June 13th, 1951
Death: July 11th, 2017
Age: 66 years

     Entered Eternal Rest on July 11, 2017, surrounded by his loving family at the age of 66 years.

     Gary was born on a Wednesday in June 13, 1951, in Bay City, Michigan the only child of the late Joseph and Betty (Davenport) Gazimek. He graduated from Bay City Central High School in 1969. He continued his education at Saginaw Valley State College where he obtained his Master’s Degree. On May 22, 1976, he wed the former Patricia Ann Wise; she survives him.

    He initially entered the work force as an employee of The Dow Chemical Company but later switched over to the pharmaceutical field. He went to work for Wyeth then toiled for Pfizer until his retirement in 2010.

     Gary most loved spending time with his family; they were his whole world. He also enjoyed reading, pizza, the Tigers, Diet Pepsi, and the occasional swig of Tequila. He had a fondness for shopping at Jack’s Fruit and Meat Market and Meijer. Gary will be remembered as a family man; hard-working, dedicated and always possessing the right answer. He had a giant heart, quick wit, the ability to set a stranger at ease immediately and fall in love with him within minutes.

      Besides his wife Pat, those left to cherish his memory are his children, Melissa (Jason) Bostwick and Mark (Jessica) Gazimek; twin grandchildren, Hudson “my little buddy Huddy” and Hailee “my little sweetheart” Bostwick; and his once-in-a-lifetime dog, Edward.
