    My condolences to Angie and George; Patrick and Haleigh, your family and friends Gary. I will miss you very much. Rest in Peace my dear friend. My life was better because I met you. You are gone but will never be forgotten. You were my rock and helped me through a very difficult time in my life. You were my friend, my taco (and burger) buddy, my confidant, my companion, and my person. I will forever cherish the time , albeit a very short amount of time, that we spent together. You will be missed Gary Lee Kolvek, no more “Let me tell you something”; “Here’s the deal”, “Ditto” or “We make plans and God Laughs” . Thank you for your compassion, honesty, integrity, friendship and love. Thank you for being a wonderful man and amazing human! I will miss you very much. I only hope and pray your kids know just how very proud you were of them and how much you loved them.

    The last time I talked to Gary was side by side on the interstate while driving. Such a Gary encounter. Loved it! Gary was a scrapper. He will be missed. May God give comfort to his family.

    It was such a pleasure working with You Gary. I’ll miss the morning kidding of my parking skills and always remember when we bumped into each other on vacation in Brainard Minnesota playing put put golf. You will be greatly missed by your Echo family. Thoughts and prayers for you and your family during this unthinkable time.

    Dear Kolvek family, I’m so sorry for your loss. The posted picture of Gary brings back old memories of Gary teasing me about Iowa football (his typical funny smirk). Such a good guy. Keeping you all in my prayers.

    Gary was a very kind person. He was a student at Cathedral when I taught there. Always upbeat, friendly and helpful. He loved playing football.

    May he rest in peace. Sorry I couldn’t be there (out of town).but thank you for celebrating his life with Mass.

    Mr. Richard Garrigan
