I am sorry to read about the death of an old classmate. I met Gary in September of 1957 at Camp Storer. I was a freshman at the University of Toledo, College of Engineering. I attended the UT Freshman Camp at Storer. Gary was one of the upperclassmen attached to the boat dock. A friend and I requested the use of a canoe to go out on Stoney Lake. Since we knew how to launch a canoe, we carried it out the dock and properly entered the canoe. After we paddled around the lake for a while, we returned and properly got out of the canoe and carried it up to the rack. (A lot of other students just entered the canoe from the beach and scraped their way off the beach.) After the evening campfire, either Gary or Art Keel tapped me on the shoulder and said to meet at the Mess Hall after the campfire. When I got there, I found several other "councilors" .We were to be the midnight patrol of the lake. Some of the councilors and students paddled over to the cabins across the lake. Some of the councilors and students paddled out in the weeds. When all the campers had dispersed, we picked up the 5 man canoes and quietly paddled toward the weeds. Just short of the weed, the command was given to "dig in". We must have looked like PT boats as we charged into the weeds. The goal was to tip over the canoes and dump the campers into the mud. (The water was shallow.) A lot of commotion! And that is how I met Gary, Art and a lot of other campers. They were a great lot. Gary was also talented with his 4 string guitar. We really enjoyed sitting around the campfire singing some of the old camp songs. I returned the next three years of Freshman Camp as a councilor, and the midnight patrol! Regards, Don Neifer, Class of '62, BSCE
