In Loving Memory

April 10, 1951 – May 7, 2018

Gary Richard Gandt, a native of Mobile, AL and a resident of Gulf Shores, AL, passed away on Monday, May 7, 2018, at the age of 67.  Gary was such a humble and selfless man.  He never met a stranger and loved everyone.  Gary was very generous and loved to give to others.  He loved being out on the water and fishing.  He was known to many as a “jack of all trades” and could fix anything.  He was a hard worker and loved to do things for his family.  Whether it was grilling, frying or boiling, Gary was most happy when he was cooking for his family.  And to those who knew him best, he was known as “Uncle G”. 

Gary was preceded in death by his parents, Richard Frank Gandt and Magdalene Griffith Gandt; and sister, Linda Gandt Schulingkamp.  He is survived by his son, Frank Gandt (Linoy Dahan), of Orange Beach, AL; step-sons, Edward J. Young (Ashley) and Charles Stuart Young (Paula); step-daughter, Karla Hamric; two grandchildren, Richard David Gandt and Trent Martinez; niece, Amy Schulingkamp Parks (Tracy); nephew, Mark Schulingkamp (Courtney); and one great-nephew, Andrew Wallace (Brooke); along with other relatives and friends.

A memorial service will be held on Saturday, May 19, 2018 at 1517 W. Beach Blvd., Gulf Shores, AL 36542 at 11 AM.
