Gary L. Hess, 63, Green Bay, suddenly and unexpectedly passed away at his
home on Wednesday, Feb. 8, 2012. Gary was born on March 11, 1948, in
Lakewood, Wis., to John Hess, Senior and Dorothy (Koch) Hess. He was a
graduate of Wabeno High School and had a zest for fast cars and fun. He
served his country in the U.S. Coast Guard and resided in Green Bay, where
he worked for 37 years at Tape, Inc. before doors closed in 2005. In his
earlier years he loved to shoot Trap, downhill ski and could always be seen
in summer riding his motor cycle (beanie hat and all). Midlife, he enjoyed
traveling with his friend, Rocky, tours with the "Green Bay Fun Club" and
had a passion for scenic photography. The past few years, he could be seen
cruising around town with his new toy - a 1967 Candy Apple red Chevy Camaro.
Gary enjoyed life, loved to meet new people, socialize and have fun.

He is survived by his daughter and son-in-law, Lori Hess-Rosio and Richard,
Suamico, Wis.; two grandchildren, Jake and Elizabeth Rosio; a sister and
brother-in-law, Gail (Hess) Sees and Gary, De Pere; a brother, Jim Hess,
Green Bay; nephews, Rick Sees (children, Sean, Joe and Samantha), De Pere;
