Gaertner, Richard “Dick”, Carrollton, Michigan

Went home to be with the Lord on Monday, December 2, 2013. He was 83 years old, an Army veteran, and had enjoyed a full and wonderful life. A Professional Grandpa and a devoted U of M fan; he enjoyed a good nap, reading, and rocking on the backyard swing. Nobody loved a good backyard Fourth of July fireworks show like Dick. His spirit lives on in his two children: Kris and Rich; six grandchildren: Sarah, Haley, Riley, Richie, Ian and Natasha. Come join Dick’s loving wife, Jean, for a Memorial Celebration on his birthday, December 28, 2013 at noon at Bruce’s Bar, 2721 Carrollton Road, Carrollton. We will be having a drink in his honor. In lieu of flowers, those planning an expression of sympathy may wish to consider memorials to the Humane Society of Saginaw County, 123 S. Niagara St., Saginaw, MI, 48602. Arrangements have been entrusted to the Deisler Funeral Home, 2233 Hemmeter Road (off State). Please share your thoughts and memories with the family at Bruce’s Bar or through
