Gary Eugene Bisenius passed away unexpectedly on Monday, Oct. 21, 2013, just three weeks before his 60th birthday
Born in Emmetsburg, he was the fourth of nine children. Gary had many great stories to share about his early years in this fun, loving family.
In 1976, Gary met his soul mate, Meridee, a teacher. They married a year later, saving money that first year to move to Arizona. It was the first of many places they planned to live, but loved it so much they decided to stay
Gary was preceded in death by his dear mother, Rosella Bisenius; his grandparents, Mr. and Mrs. Eugene Murphy and Mr. and Mrs. John Bisenius; and his brother-in-law, Willy Weig-and.
He is survived by his wife, Meridee; daughter, Marisa; father, Frank; brothers, Bill (Pam) and Mark (Chelle); sisters, Sheryl Chamberlain (Ter-ry), Trish George (Dave), Barb Campbell (Carey), Terry Weigand (Willy), Deb Duus (Kirk) and Lynn Clabaugh, Troy; too many nieces and nephews to list.
Services were held Tuesday, Nov. 12, at Christ Church of the Valley in Peoria,?AZ.
The family is very grateful for all the love, compassion and generosity shown at this difficult time.
