Gary died October 6, 2019 at his home.

Gary Edwin, son of Harold Carl and Anna Dorthea (Wolff) Schlosser was born June 14, 1958 at Ellendale, ND.  He grew up in Frederick, graduating from Frederick High School with the class of 1976.  He worked beside his dad on the family farm.  His dad died in 1992 and in 1994 Gary began working at Aberdeen Asphalt.  In the early 2000’s, he began working at Avera St. Luke’s Hospital as a groundskeeper, a job he truly enjoyed.

Gary was a member of St. Paul’s Lutheran Church and Herman Schlinker American Legion Post #137.  He served his community as a volunteer firefighter and on the Frederick Town Board.  Gary was a humble and happy gentleman with an infectious giggle.  He enjoyed hunting and camping, campfires and fishing at the gravel pit.  He was an avid gardener.  A relaxing day for Gary was simply driving around the area and enjoying the scenery.  “Life is great in Frederick, South Dakota”.

Grateful for having shared Gary’s life are his son, Logan Schlosser of Frederick; sisters, Debby (Don) McCartney of Maricopa, AZ and Karen (John) Brotzel of Frederick and Logan’s sisters, Lacie Kersting of Milnor, ND and Brittni Kersting of Fargo, ND.

He was preceded in death by his parents and two brothers, Kenneth (2-10-99) and John (6-24-18).

Honorary Urnbearers will be Gary’s Friends in the Frederick Community.

Urnbearers will be Logan Schlosser and Karen Brotzel.
