Gary L. Stoffer, 79, passed away on October 27, 2022. He leaves behind his loving wife of 58 years Janet (Telford) Stoffer, a son Jeffrey Stoffer (Deirdre) a daughter Julie Manley (George), two brothers William Stoffer (Elaine) and Richard Stoffer (Jancy), grandchildren Natalie Stoffer Bigg (Wayne), Kyle Stoffer (Kassie), Ben and Miles Manley, Austen Bertrand, great grandchildren Ryan and Garrett Bigg, Liam, Isabell and Maddox Stoffer.

While spending over 36 years in various leadership roles in the manufacturing industry, the sea called him. He turned his passion for sailing into a lifestyle that he and Janet enjoyed for over 28 years. On their sailboat "Lee-Ann" they traveled Lake Erie, Canada, up and down the east coast and finally to the Bahamas where they wintered for 14 years.
Turning his need for adventure to the land, the RV became another home. Navigating all 50 states they created many memories. Opportunities to enjoy Europe and Asia made this world traveler complete.
At the request of the family, services will be private.
He will be deeply missed by friends and family alike.
