I have searched long and hard to best express my feelings, I would like to Thank the Kelemen Family and the Lord for sharing such a Wonderful person with all of us. He will be greatly missed.
I was really sad to hear about the passing of Gary. When my dad told me, I instantly thought about all the wonderful summer memories we had with Kelemen family. My thoughts and prayers are with the family.
Chris, We were so shocked and saddened to hear of Gary's passing the last time we saw you was an Oiler game, so we feel sad we weren't help to offer any support during his illness. We were just talking about the opportunity to see you again since the hockey season is finally starting. We will miss his generous laughter and quick wit. Our thoughts and prayers are with you and the boys and we look forward to a visit soon. And although their are no words we hope you can find comfort and strength knowing the type of man he was and oh so many wonderful memories........Your friends Harry and Darlene Anders
Dear Chrissie and Family:
It has been a very long time since we have seen each other - but I will always remember how special you and Gary were in my world so many years ago! (like 1977!) He was a wonderful fellow then and I know he would have continued to be just the same right till the end. My thoughts and prayers are with you all now.
Always remember . . . not even death can take away all those wonderful memories that you have shared over the years. Hugs from Here

Dear Keleman Family, There are no words that bring comfort at this time, but I want to share that my late husband Doug worked for Gary for a long time and had the utmost respect for this generous kind man. At the time of Doug's illness Gary made the time and came to the hospital to see us and offered any help he could give. I cannot believe that Gary passed on the exact same day 6 years later. Now they both fly in heaven watching over us. My thoughts are with you all :(
