Gary Michael Muntz of Caro, age 82, passed away Wednesday, December 12, 2018, at United Hospice Service in Marlette.
Gary was born in Mayville on March 6, 1936, to the late Norval and Beulah (Weston) Muntz. He spent much of his early life in Mayville working on his parent’s farm.

There was even a short stint of riding motorcycles. He loved playing bingo and traveling on bus trips to the casinos with friends. Gary loved sports and on Sundays you could find him watching the Lions, win or lose.
