His career as a Private Investigator began in Arizona and continued upon his return to Syracuse. Gary was an avid golfer, classic movies aficionado, and loyal fan of the Syracuse Chiefs, NY Yankees, and Syracuse University basketball and football teams. His clever wit, charm, and sense of humor defined his character.

Gundlach, Sr. He leaves his sister-in-law Gwendolyn Gundlach of Jaffrey, NH, his uncle Ron MacDowell of Carolina Shores, NC, four nephews, numerous cousins, and a daughter and son from earlier marriages.
