Seems like it was high school...and my wife said, "He was quiet". Long time ago but good memories. Thinking of those closest to him and may you have peace.

I am so sorry for your sudden loss. I can't say that I knew Gary well; non of those Ditmer men seem to talk much. My thoughts and prayers are with you!

I'm so sorry, Doug & Mike & Diana for the loss of your brother. Many moons ago Gary and I spent time over on the corner of Weber St. and Young St. talking and having a great time. He sure was a good man. Our prayers are with you during this very difficult time. With Love,
Dean & Donna

Dear Family, I worked with Gary for many years on 3rd shift at Crayex. I learned how to work with Gary.......he was in a lot of pain from his leg injury, yet he tried to work through it.......he was particular in doing a good job. I learned a lot from working with Gary. Thank you for the memories Gary!! Jeff Gower
