Gary A. Vande Zande, 74, of Waupun, died April 11, 2019.

Gary was meticulous in everything he did. You could see that in the love of his vehicles and the cherished projects in his garage. He would study everything at least two or three times before he would do something once. He was a man of organization. He was a man of few words with a witty sense of humor. He loved his wife and children. He also dearly loved his dog and best friend, Barney.

Gary is survived by his daughter, Leah Lackey of Texas; sons: London Vande Zande (friend, Heather Goebel) of Sheboygan and Lance (Erica) Vande Zande of Beaver Dam; and a granddaughter, Denver Vande Zande of Randolph.

Gary was preceded in death by his parents; a son-in-law, Tim; and a grandson, Jessie.
