Gary Samuelson

Obituary of Gary Wayne Samuelson

Please share a memory of Gary to include in a keepsake book for family and friends.
Age 78. Passed April 28, 2022, surrounded by his loved ones. A life-long Stratford resident, Gary was preceded in death by his brother Lee Samuelson, his mother Bertha Nolte (nee Nicholson), and step-father Anton Nolte. Survived by his loving wife of 56 years, Margaret "Peg" (nee Kolb), daughters Tracy Samuelson of Morrisville, PA, and Tammy Van Leuven of Marlton, NJ, as well as son-in-law Chris Van Leuven and grandchildren Erik, Chelsea, and Avery Van Leuven. (And he would not want us to forget all the pets!) Relatives and friends are invited to attend his visitation Thursday evening May 5th from 6-7PM. Eulogies to be read at 7PM. Interment will be private. Everyone will remember Gary as funny, reliable, and generous, and a man of simple tastes. He loved talk radio, oldies music, The Rockford Files, caring for the dogs, eating in his favorite restaurants, and handing out twenties to the grandchildren for every hockey or soccer goal they'd make. In lieu of flowers, please make a donation in Gary's name to the dog rescue of your choice, and toast him with an ice-cold glass of milk.
