Gabe was a member of the VFW Winiecki Post #9677 and served on their honor guard for many years. He enjoyed bowling and golfing, participating in numerous leagues. He played baseball and looked forward to watching baseball and was known to throw a pretty mean dart ball. He loved his family dearly and treasured the time he spent with them. The getaways to Kelly Lake were always looked forward to. Stories were told and memories were made. Gabe had a strong faith and was a longtime member of St. Philip the Apostle Parish for many years.

Some knew him as Gabe, some knew him as Bud, Norby or Suds, but to us, he will always be dad. We love you.
