Obituary: Gary K. Gustafson

Gary K. Gustafson, 56, of Little Sturgeon, died Feb. 13, 2018 at St. Vincent Hospital in Green Bay following an automobile accident.

He was born July 18, 1961 in Milwaukee, the son of Norman and Margaret (Randazzo) Gustafson. Gary operated G-Man painting business and was an accomplished yacht painter. On Dec. 31, 2016, he married his best friend, Sandra “Sandy” R. LaViolette, in Algoma.

Gary was a “get out of bed and get it done” kind of person. He loved his family, friends, and playing in various pool leagues, recently with JD’s Pool Team.

He will be deeply missed by his wife, Sandra LaViolette; two daughters, Destiny and Cassandra Hoeff; his mother, Margaret Gustafson; sister, Donna Gustafson; and five step-children, Ezekiel, Sarah, Zeph, Psalm, Samuel; ten step-grandchildren.

Gary was preceded in death by his father, Norman Gustafson; paternal grandparents, Clarence and Irene Gustafson; maternal grandparents, Vincent and Margaret Randazzo; aunts, Marie Kiedrowski and Janet Claflin; uncle, Vernon Gustafson; and parents-in-law, Howard and Betty LaViolette. Scooby, Gary and Sandy’s dog, joined him in eternal life as a result of riding with Gary during the accident.

Gary’s life was honored with a funeral service Feb. 20, 2018 at Huehns Funeral Home in Sturgeon Bay.
