Kaye Wallace (Bandy, Brother & Spouse)

There was an error in Gary's obituary.  He was a member of Kimberling City First Baptist Church.Kimberling  at the time of his death.  He had bone cancer.

Gary was a joy to be married to. We traveled to Az in 1996 and 1997.  We had  a fifth wheel travel trailer and enjoyed our trips west. We moved to Branson and Kimberling City area in the fall of 1997.

Gary had four grandchildren when he died and I think his youngest daughter and husband had 2 little girls after his death.

Gary and I dated in High School in the late 50's and both our mates in l994.We dated in l995 and got married in 1996.  We prayed for at leat 10 years to gather but only had 5.
