Garry Lynn Lehr 69, 

Kalamazoo MI

The sun rose for Garry on February 21st, 1954, His final sunset was seen on April 08th 2023. Beloved Son, Brother and Uncle, Garry was born in Kalamazoo Michigan to Parents Claude and Elise (Richardson) Lehr.

He was a man of simple words.  As he grew older, he found a love for deer hunting and was always out at the crack of dawn on opening day. In his adult life, he worked at Graphic Packaging until his retirement in 2019. With his free time, he could be found at a local garage sale searching for hidden treasure or at home building numerous model sets.  He also had a knack for many DIY projects throughout his home. His favorite thing was going to Michigan’s up north with his brothers where they spent nights talking around the fire and days searching for big foot. His true love in life was chocolate milk, as it was rare to ever see him without a half gallon of chocolatey goodness in hand.  He always drank from the container because there was no need to waste a glass.

Garry is preceded in death by his brother Larry Lehr. Surviving are his two sisters, Janet (Rick) Bowers, Diane (Steve) Hewitt and one brother, Lyle (Janice) Lehr. 

A celebration of life will be held later this year where we will all drink a glass of chocolate milk in Garry’s honor. Please check back for more details. While visiting Garry’s memory page, please sign the guestbook or leave a memory for the family.

The family is being cared for by Avink, McCowen & Secord Funeral Home in Schoolcraft (269) 679-5622.
