Sad News – Gary Hackbarth

Gary D. Hackbarth of South Milwaukee, website like this Wisconsin, and was welcomed home on July 12 at the age of 73. He passed away peacefully, surrounded by his loving wife Ambrocia and daughters Connie and Tina.
Gary maintained a positive, upbeat attitude since being diagnosed with cancer in December and was able to maintain his active lifestyle until about two weeks ago.
Gary grew up in Oshkosh and graduated from Oshkosh High School West in 1963. He attended several class reunions and returned annually to the area for the Zillges’ family reunions.
Early in his career. Gary pursued his interest in computers and became a typesetter at the Oshkosh daily “The Paper” which was the first newspaper in Wisconsin to be printed on an offset press.
Gary served in the U.S. Army from 1965-1967 as a Sergeant during the Vietnam war. He was stationed in Paris and traveled throughout Europe as a member of the 257 Signal Corps, responsible for transmitting key military communications from NATO allied forces.
Gary married Shari (Meitner) in 1967. He and his family moved to Milwaukee in 1972 and to South Milwaukee in 1978. Gary worked as a typesetter for North Shore publishers, which published several local suburban newspapers in the area. He than worked, and retired from, Delphi, a division of General Motor after over 33 years as a job setter.
Gary became a widower in 1992 when his wife died unexpectedly.

In retirement, Gary became an active member of the Harley Davidson (HOGS) of Milwaukee from, 2007-2016. He traveled extensively in many states.
