Gary was a wonderful family man and family was very important to him. He spent his life doing what he loved and that was farming. He found a love for tractor pulling at age 8 and it continued until his death. His love for tractor pulling was passed on down to his son. Gary enjoyed life and his infectious laugh is what people will mostly remember.

Gary was preceded in death by his parents and an infant brother, Charles Sendelweck.
