Gary's daughter, Angela, wanted me to pass on these funeral arrangements and a request for donations in lieu of flowers.
Gary's funeral will be held on Tuesday, November 21st., at
St. Anthony of Padua Catholic Church,
32825 Rhode Island Avenue, San Antonio, Fl, 33576.
On the web at http://www.saopccfl.org;
the church service will be at 10am.
The burial will be at the Florida National Cemetery,
6502 SW 102nd Avenue, Bushnell, FL, 33513;
the burial service and Military Funeral Honors will be at 12:30pm.
She advises the family has asked that in lieu of flowers, charitable donations be made in honor of Gary W. Gard to the
"Beth Dillinger Foundation - Nourish to Flourish";
100% of all donations go directly to feeding hungry children in the Tampa area.
Angela goes on to say, "As many of you know, Dad cared deeply for helping those in need and less fortunate, especially children. We feel helping a charity on a local level will have a meaningful impact on our community in his honor".
The on-line donation form has a "comments or questions" section at the bottom of the "donor information" field; that's where you can let them know the donation is being made in Gary's honor.
