Today with very heavy hearts, firefighters from throughout the bay area arrived to say good bye to one of their own. On August 10, South City firefighter Gary Patzelt made his last call, and left us way too soon.
Services were held at Mater Dolorosa Church and officiated by Father Roland. A funeral procession of fire trucks brought Gary to his resting place at Holy Cross Cemetery.
A South City native, Gary was well known and will be missed by all in his home town. Words shared on the program as shown below, speak of this gentle soul.
Blessings on you Gary, Rest in Peace.
One of Gary’s greatest passions was supporting Champ Camp through the Alisa Ann Ruch Burn Foundation.
