    To his Gale’s family: So I only met this man a few times. I know that he was a great man a and wonderful human being. This knowledge was garnered only by making the acquaintance of his wife Janet and daughter Elizabeth that later turned into a cherished friendship of mine. His grand daughters and his family extended family all paid tribute to this man by their kind and generous spirit. I know he will missed greatly. I’ll pray for strength, comfort and peace for you his family, in knowing he was a great man and is in a good place. Sending you my love and sincere condolences.

    I had the honor of working for Gale as secretary/bookkeeper for several years at Sun Buildings in Hannibal. I had no idea he led such a fascinating life, both before and after I knew him. I remember his concern and my praying for one of the girls who had been bitten by a dog and had to have rabies shots. I appreciate your family and my memories of Gale. May God bless you as you grieve this loss.
