Gary L. Leayman, 71, Oconto Falls, died early Thursday morning, June 7, 2018 at home with his family present, following a three year illness with acute myeloid leukemia.  He was born September 21, 1946 in Winfield, KS to Glenroy and Marjorie (Kunkel) Leayman.  Gary grew up in the area where he attended schools, graduating from Douglas High School with the class of 1964.  Following graduation, he attended Cowley County College where he earned an associate degree.  Gary then entered the US Air Force and served for four years during the Vietnam War.

On November 30, 1968 he married Mary Larson in St. Ignace, MI.  The couple lived in St. Ignace for many years where Gary worked as a machinist.  In 1984, they and their young family moved to Oconto Falls where Gary worked for Magna-Graphics for 12 years, before retiring from Liebert Machines in Green Bay.  After retirement, he managed RV Horizons Mobile Home Park in Oconto Falls.  Gary’s greatest enjoyment in life was helping others.
