Gary J. Gulick Obituary
Gulick, Gary J.; of Ann Arbor, MI; passed away May 30, 2014. He was born January 16, 1950, in Battle Creek, MI, to Helen (Hermoyne) and Alba (Frank) Gulick. He graduated from Lincoln Park High in 1968. Between 1969 and 1970, Gary served as a Paratrooper in the 173rd Airborne Brigade in Vietnam where he achieved the rank of Sergeant. For his leadership, dedication and service to his men and his country, he was awarded the Bronze Star with Three Oak Leafs, the Air Medal, the Army Commendation Medal, the Meritorious Service Medal, and the Combat Infantryman Badge among others. He was also later noted in civilian life as one of the Outstanding Vietnam Veterans of Washtenaw County, MI and received a Citation from President Jimmy Carter.

He married Lynne Winger in 1977 and soon after raised two children, Nathan and Galen. In his distinguished career, Gary worked for over 39 years as an Ironworker, where he acquired a strong reputation as a reliable, smart, and inexhaustible “Bridgeman.” Gary was passionate about the arts, motorcycles, life, wine, and athleticism. His interests were diverse and his pursuit of knowledge was never-ending and served as an inspiration for all that knew him, whether it be his brothers and sisters in the Ironworkers Local #25, close friends, and family.
