Obituary

Gary Allen Raminger
A good man was lost to us on Monday, September 28, 2020. Gary “Gramps” Raminger quietly slipped away and is now free of pain. He was born on a cold U.P. day, January 26, 1941 in Menominee, MI to Joseph and Margaret (Hendrickson) Raminger.
Gary was your classic 50's teenager with his crew cut, white t-shirt, and blue jeans with cuffs. After graduating from Menominee High School in 1959, he enlisted in the United States Army. He served as a RADAR operator and was an Honor Guard at numerous military funerals. He later served for many years in the National Guard. Gary considered it an honor to be a military Veteran and appreciated being thanked for his service while out and about around town. From the first moment he met Natalie Beland, he knew she was the one for him and they were married on February 21, 1976. Gary and Natalie were blessed with two daughters, Kelly Lynn in 1980 and Angela Marie in 1984. Although Gary held many jobs throughout his life, one of his favorites was driving the Zamboni at the Civic Center. He loved interacting with all of the kids and cheering on the M & M Thunder hockey teams. Although “Gramps” acted like a grumpy old man, they all knew he was a pushover with a heart of gold.
Left behind is Gary's beloved daughter Kelly (fiance Tony Strublic). Gary also leaves behind his very dear sister-in-law Noreen Beland, his sister Mary Jane (Griff) Lindsay, brother James Raminger, special cousins Jerry Bergstrom and Jan Smith, numerous nieces, nephews and cousins.
With his passing, Gary was reunited with his soulmate Natalie and their daughter Angie. Also there to greet him were his mom and dad, sisters Carol, Susie and Pam, brother-in-law Mike, best friend/cousin Tommy Bergstrom and his bestest granddogs Piper and Radar. Also feeling his absence are the other fur kids in his life: his chum Tut, Mouse, Gus, Ilsa, Shatzi and Norm.
Due to the pandemic, a celebration of life will take place at a later time, but in the meantime, please raise a glass (preferably his favorite Kessler's on the rocks with 3 olives) in his memory.
Burial at Forest Home Cemetery will be in the Spring of 2021.
A very special thank you to the amazing doctors, nurses and staff at Aurora Bay Care Medical Center in Green Bay, especially the rockstars in ICU 3B.
Hansen-Onion-Martell Funeral Home is assisting the family.
Gary loved John Wayne, the Detroit Lions and detested the Green Bay Packers (not necessarily in that order). Sundays will be a lot quieter without him yelling at the football games! To say he will be missed by those who loved him is an understatement. He was a huge presence in our lives and his passing leaves a void that will never be filled.
