I can remember vividly the first time I had the privilege of knowing Gaylord. We were freshmen at BSHS and practicing for the freshman football squad. This was in 1955. We became very good friends as a result of our participation on the practice field. I can remember of an instance where he was running the ball and I met him on defense and he got the best of me. I will never forget his response since it was a head on head tackle. He subsequently became a very good friend through the years. He was a very kind, respectful, and loyal friend. I have not seen him for over 60 years but the memories will live on. A wonderful human being!!

Is there such a thing as a cousin-in- law? More than that would be a friend. That"s the relationship I felt, Gaylord was easy to like. He could laugh and tell stories and set you at ease. That inner strength stayed with him until the end. You will be missed my friend.

My condolences to the Jones family. The Linwood community was blessed by them. I remember them running the apartments and letting us kids play in the yard there and running us out of the apartments when we decided to run the stairs. Gaylord will be missed. Prayers to all of the family. Donald Brock and Martin & DeAnna Klamm and family.

Gaylord was an amazing man. He was always supporting our small Linwood community and gave so much of his time to all the kids through baseball, wrestling and basketball. He loved his family and will be missed. Many prayers to the entire family.
