Gary J. Ernst

US Army

SERVED: 11/1966 – 6/1967

Location: Vietnam


Memory from a Loved One: 

Gary was the third of seven children born to Wilfred and Anita Ernst.

One of the favorite memories was of Christmastime. Gary would be searching the farm for the best small cedar tree. When the time came, he and Jim would bring the tree home, dragging it through the fields. Gary enjoyed growing up on the farm. Plowing the corn was mostly his job. Fishing and hunting were some of his favorite activities along with playing baseball.

Gary will always be remembered for his kind and caring heart and will forever be missed.
