I spent a lot of my childhood on Sundays, going through a neighbor’s backyard to go play with Sarah and Lucia. Mr, Gaylord, as I called him, was so kind to me. Always had a smile! Later in life, I was finally able to call him David! We shared a passion for puzzle making. He’d give me a call and tell me about his latest ones. I will miss our chats. He always brightened my day! Prayers go out to everyone in the family.

Dear Mrs. Gaylord and family,
My heartfelt sympathy to you. Mr. Gaylord was such a thoughtful next door neighbor and wonderful neighborhood dad. I have fond memories of him playing baseball in your backyard with the neighborhood kids and in winter how he would build a snow hill for sledding. Memories are the treasures we hold in our hearts forever. It was a pleasure knowing Mr. Gaylord, he will be missed.

To Carol and family, no words can express the sorrow that is felt in hearing of Mr. G’s passing. I had the pleasure of working for him at Burlington Federal Savings and Loan (Vt. Federal Savings and Loan) for almost 18 years until his retirement. He was a true gentleman and very forthcoming when asked a question. His reputation was of a very fair man who deserved everyone’s respect. The world is a little darker without him in it.
