Gary L. Bender, 85, passed away suddenly January 18, 2022 after a long illness, and is now with his heavenly father.
He was preceded in transition by his parents Ray and Zola, and wife Stella, and survived by his sister Marilyn and cousin Shirley Koehler.
A committal service is planned at Crown Hill Memorial Park in Twinsburg, OH. In lieu of flowers, memorials may be made to the Alzheimer's Association of Akron or Haven of Rest ministries.
He was much loved. I look forward to seeing him again in the heavenly kingdom.
