Gary Eshelman

Iowa City

Gary Reverdy Eshelman, 60, went to join family and friends in heaven beneath the brilliance of fireworks. He will be peacefully tending his garden, winning more coming contests and enjoying a cold one with his Viking head thrown back in laughter.
Those left behind are his remaining sister, Deanne Pilcher; daughters, LaDora Martin and Lisa Eshelman; four grandchildren; and many other family and friends.
Graveside services with military honors will be held at 1 p.m. Monday, July 23, 2018, at the Rock Island National Cemetery, Rock Island, Ill. To share a memory, thought or condolence with his family, please visit the funeral home website www.gayandciha.com.
