Gary Alan Daily, of Manawa, took his first breath on March 7, 1948 and also drew his last breath that same day 71 years later, in his home looking out over Bear Lake. Gary proudly served his country in the U.S. Army during Vietnam. He was united in marriage to Susan J. Grabner on August 10, 1968, and they celebrated 50 years of marriage last summer. He worked at Kimberly Clark in Neenah as an Electrician for almost 40 years. Gary loved playing guitar and singing in his band that he started in high school called The Faro’s. He especially enjoyed cooking and spending time with his family and friends at his home. Gary was a man of many talents, with a great sense of humor who loved to have fun and make people laugh.
