Early Lake Havasu City resident Gary Grzesiowski passed away July 10 at his home in Battle Ground, Wash., at the age of 63. Gary moved with his family to Lake Havasu City in June of 1967 from St. Louis, Mo. In July of 1974 he married his wife, Rosann, moving for a short time to California. They soon returned to Lake Havasu City where Gary and his friend, Dave Gabler, ran a successful business, Kitchen Kabinets until 1981.
Gary relocated to California for a short time, eventually settling in Battle Ground, Wash. There he used his skills in kitchen design as a long time and valued employee of Home Depot where he ran the kitchen cabinet and appliance department.
Early in his life Gary enjoyed baseball and fly-fishing, learning to tie his own flies. He was also known to hit a golf ball or two as well and he enjoyed deep sea fishing trips. Later he developed a passion for learning about and constructing models of WWII airplanes.
Gary will be remembered as a loving husband and devoted grandfather. He especially loved watching his grandkids participate in football, church plays, choirs and other activities.
