"Gail was a kind and caring man. He never failed to wave as we passed by his house. As he would walk past our house on his way to his weekly card game, he always threw his hand up in greeting and would say hello and comment on the weather. He will definitely be missed by all that knew him. Our thoughts and prayers are with the entire Huntzinger family during this difficult time.
