Gary was born on July 13, 1976, to Diane Warner and David Vossekuil in Fond du Lac, Wisconsin. Gary is preceded in death by his brother, Kraig, father, David, stepmother, Patrice Vossekuil, and grandparents Leroy and Verona Vossekuil, Lois and Felix King, and Merton and June Warner. He is survived by his mother, Diane Warner of Oshkosh and families of aunts and uncles throughout Wisconsin. As one of four brothers, he is also survived by brother Kurt, wife Rhonda and their children Michael, Claire and Carson of Mayville, Wisconsin; and brother Ryan, wife Maria and their children Leah, Lauren and Alena of Mayville, Wisconsin. Gary’s life is also celebrated by the many friends who shared countless memories of his contagious smile, humor and gentle, kind heart.
Gary graduated from Mayville High School in 1995 and earned a bachelor’s degree from UW-Oshkosh. Gary enjoyed a successful career as a graphic designer for Gannett Publishing and for the State of Wisconsin serving the state legislature.
Although Gary took great pride in his career, his greatest joy came from spending time with his family and spoiling his nieces and nephews. He never walked through the door without a smile on his face and a gift of candy in his hand. Anyone fortunate to have known Gary will surely recall his love for Wisconsin Badgers football, and his ability to make anyone smile and laugh with his humor! He always valued family and ensured holiday traditions passed on by grandparents were fulfilled; right down to filling the candy dish just the way grandma Roni did!
In lieu of flowers, memorials are gratefully accepted to Baggin For A Cure – a local organization that reached out immediately to support Gary through his diagnosis and strives to help so many who continue to fight their battle with cancer. A special thank you to the staff of UW Health Cancer Center and Rainbow Hospice staff who compassionately cared for Gary until his last breath.
Gary was one of the gentlest, most kindhearted people you would ever have met. He will surely be missed by many.
